I'm a mother (and bonus mother) to three children and I'm married to my best friend.
I've been painting, drawing, making art since I was a child. All my life, my dream was to create. As a child, I saw that my tiny drawings and silly sketches made people happy and that's all I ever wanted.
Sometimes it feels like making art is the only thing I've ever been confident about. Growing up, I aways had problems with my appearance and I always thought I was "dumb." I love art because you don't have to be smart or beautiful to create something beautiful or thought provoking.
For a long time, I was on the straight path for art. But as many of us know, life doesn't always lead you down the path that you want to go and my career changed in order to secure a stable life for my family. However, my love for art has never faded though.
My artwork is mostly emotionally driven. If I'm sad, angry, happy, anxious, scared...whatever emotion, my first thought is to put those feelings on paper.
Art comes from the heart and I've only just now started trying to get serious about getting my art out to the public. I've never cared about the money. If I could give my work away for free, I would but I know that realistically, I can't afford to buy supplies and keep creating art without the funds to do so.
Everything I do (aside from photography) is done by hand. I don't use digital editing software or any sort of alterations during the creation of my piece. What you see is what you get. You may see some minor faults, or imperfections on my line work, but its because I too am imperfect.
I just want others to see what I can make and hopefully enjoy what gives me pleasure in life. I hope you like my gallery and I hope that you stop by again as my page will be updated as I obtain and upload high quality images of my artwork.
If you ever have any ideas or suggestions on something you would like to see me paint or create, please let me know. I'm always open to ideas and I love seeing an idea come to life on paper
