I live on the western slope of Colorado with my two children & my husband. During the summer months, we love to go camping & fishing & hang out in the surrounding mountains together as many weekends as possible.
For work, I operate a Shih Tzu breeding business, an online store & an Ebay store, in my spare time, I enjoy my artwork. :)
I have been doing artwork since I was young. My mother, who has now taught art for 32 years & is also a freelance artist working in watercolors, acrylics & glass painting, taught me how to draw, (& tried to teach me how to paint), when I was a child.
I never did learn to really enjoy painting with a brush, I was more taken by drawing, airbrushing & pastels. For the past 15 years, I have mostly drawn with pen & pencil, having gotten rather absorbed in tribal style designs with their clean lines & simple use of positive & negative space. I also love to mix in graphic design, using my art program to enhance my drawings. I do still enjoy airbrushing & pastels, but with the kids around it’s also been easier & less messy to focus on computer enhanced pen & ink drawings. Perhaps when my children are gone from home someday, I will want to venture back into the “messier mediums”, or maybe my daughter or son will want me to teach one of them when they get a bit older, which would be more fun!
For now, I am displaying the clean, simple, tribal designs I have done & am most proud of along with some photos & old pastels I love also. I hope you enjoy,
