My Bio:

A BFA in fine arts & art history, I was born to be an artist… or maybe just be weird. I’ve been painting since I was 3 years old, painting with my mom on old pieces of drift wood we found on the beach. With a few things under my belt, I still consider myself a starving artist. I created and designed a privately owned tanning salon in Galveston, I’ve been an advertising and marketing designer for several local establishments, and my swing dance team and I were selected to perform in Australia for the closing ceremony of the 2000 Olympics (not really art related but I think it’s cool!). Now, my focuses are environmental and animal related. Volunteering at the local animal shelter, I saw the worst of the worst that humans have done to animals. I’ve been supporting animal rights for 2 decades, and in that time I also became a vegetarian, after seeing a Humane Society film on Animal Testing and the conditions in the US slaughter houses. I realized right then and there that My Job is to be the voice for the furry (and not so furry)… so that’s what I do. 20% of all animal related art sales are donated to the Humane Society and I’m an avid member and supporter of PETA.

But yesterday she started bleeding from her mouth and had to rush her to the emerge…

Trying to save my puppy's life

Mattie’s Story / My 12 year old puppy Mattie has been recently diagnosed with liver cancer. When she had an ultrasound done, the doctor said she needed surgery to remove the tumor and the spleen (the tumor was wrapped completely around it), but it was only a 5-10% chance she would make it through. Well, she did and with flying colors. She was out chasing ducks 2 days later. Unfortunately, I…
