A little bit about me ...
I am an artist who, through simple drawings, creates art and delivers design solutions for leading gift companies and book publishers.
I am a mom to two sweet girls and a wife to one pretty cool guy. We live in the heartland, Iowa.
I can be found at many softball practices and games drawing in my sketchbook.
I spend a lot of time in my studio/office converting my simple drawings into art collections.
I started my art journey later in life - going back to school to get my art degree when my girls were young.
I have an Etsy shop that when I still worked full-time outside of the home would require me to get up at 3am to package up orders.
I have a dog. His name is Jackson. He is 3 years old -- and finally learning how to just sit and snuggle on the couch. He’s a lab/english springer spaniel mix.
My faith is my life. Art flows out of me when I pair up my faith with my art. Scripture comes to life.
When I see a pattern I like or a neat color scheme, my heart does little flips inside of me. I honestly get excited and motivated and inspired. It puts me in a good mood. This can happen watching TV, shopping, driving in my car. It’s a little weird, I know.
I love my classic TV shows, The beginning sequence for The Bob Newhart Show or The Mary Tyler Moore Show can actually soothe my tired soul.
Writing my “about me” page like this is the only way I could think to write about myself. I don’t like attention drawn to me.
I love LOVE Christmas-time and everything it means. The birth of our Savior. White Christmas. Hokey Hallmark movies. Dean Martin/Jackie Gleason Christmas album. Twinkly lights. I love it all!
Pumpkin-spice coffee just makes me happy.
