I was born and primarily raised in Ohio. I reside now in North Carolina with my husband, Frank. I have 3 children, 1 step-son, and 12 grandchildren. Even with all of THAT going on, I have always found my way back to what I love to do...sketch. I use Rembrandt Soft Pastels in all my pieces. For smaller detail I use pastel pencils and when I need a little more variation of color, I use Gallery Soft Pastels, as well. I recently started to paint with Acrylics. I have only been painting with Acrylics for a few months now and have already sold one of my pieces.
I have had the opportunity to display my artwork in local competitions, other websites, and have sold many personal pieces to friends, family, co-workers, and even to friends of all the previously mentioned. Although, selling my artwork is always nice, I do it more for personal satisfaction and self-expression.
I have been interested in Art as long as I can remember. My goal is to express to you what I feel and see by putting it on a sketch pad. Art is not about its price but what you, as a potential buyer, feels when you look at my sketches. The way to do this is through imagination, color, and a direct line between you and my work. For me, art in any form, is not only a chance for the artist to express themselves, but a chance for you to display your love for art in your home, office, etc....
Although sketching in Pastels is what I love to do, I also like to dabble in Photography. For now, I am using an KODAK Easy Share Camera. Still being an ameteur, I find that my interest is growing in the Photography field. I have a variety of interest but mostly enjoy beach, sky, and cloud images. I hope you enjoy what I've captured so far and feel free to contact me if you wish to purchase any of my images.
