I create art because I love to, because it makes me happy. Some drawings have meaning, others don’t. It all depends on what mood I’m in and if I feel like sharing my feelings. I can’t stand people who are trying to ‘see’ more in an art piece than there is. I don’t see an underlying deeper meaning or importance to a plain yellow painted canvas. Yet people can stare at it for hours and write notes about it lol. Anyhow, I just create what I like to create and I hope that I can make other people happy with it too!
It’s been a long, long time since I last drew. The past year has been a roller coaster ride.

December 10, 2009 at 10.48 am our son Rowen Cade was born. He weighs 6 lb. 9 ounces and is 19 inches long. He’s beautiful, perfect and very sweet. We can’t imagine life without him and we’re so happy to be his parents!
