I am a full-time artist who works in watercolor, acrylic, and pen & ink. My paintings are displayed on five continents to date: North America, South America, Asia, Australia, and Africa. My goal is to have at least one collector on all seven continents. As the name implies, I work from the soul which means my work is genuine. I work for the soul which means I seek to inspire my collectors. Read on below.
Much of my adult life has been spent working the daily grind, although I've always dabbled in art in some form. After a breast cancer diagnosis, I had to ask myself the hard questions: What's really important in the life I have left? How do I want to spend that time? During my recovery, I spent time painting again, something I had missed for too long. That's when I realized I was never happier than when I am creating! So, I've finally taken the plunge as a full-time artist because life is short.
My favorite artist is Norman Rockwell because he painted the moments in life that matter. I also enjoy illustration, which is where my love of pen and ink comes in. I'm originally from a small town in Massachusetts where I lived my entire childhood. Now, I live in beautiful Oregon with my two Peach-faced Lovebirds, Pico and Maximus, and my naked Sphynx cat, Mister. Music really moves me, and I always listen while I create. I'm a woman of faith who loves the old-time hymns, instrumental, reggae, and oldies! Here are my art assistants at work!
