I am a wife, a mom, a friend, an aspiring artist who finds my inspiration in music, in art, in the little, minute details of the day. I was an Art History major and Monet, Van Gogh, Mary Cassatt, Georgia O’Keefe and Ansel Adams are my favorite artists. For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed drawing, painting, and creating in any medium that I can get my hands on. My favorite mediums are acrylics, watercolor pencils, watercolors and prismacolor soft colored pencils.
I started painting again after our only daughter started college in the fall of 2009. It was my therapy and now it is my escape from the stresses of every day life. While I work on my paintings, I listen to music, mainly that of the band, Collective Soul and it is from the lyrics of these songs, that I have found not only the titles of my pieces, but inspiration as well. The artistry of finding the right words to elicit emotion and feelings is a true gift. I find myself wanting the illustrate those words. So, I give it my best shot, my all. My hope is that my artwork can elicit the same type of feelings and emotions that Collective Soul’s music brings out in me.
I also knit and crochet for a non-profit group that a co-worker and I started – Afghans for Angels – we make blankets for childrens’ hopsitals & shelters in the metro-Atlanta area.
Since I have become a member of Redbubble, I have had the honor of having several of my works featured
