veteran, artist, instructor
I am a US Navy veteran who has proudly served and loves her county.
As an artist, I have been creating paintings and drawings in a variety of mediums since 1988.
I have been selling commissioned art since 2010 and instructing classes since 2014.
I have always had a passion for the arts, and I am so fortunate to have my art be such a large part of my life.
I have had the privilege of studying at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, Oxnard College and Brown Institute, where I received my degree in Visual Communications.
I draw what I See… and when I SEE, I draw!
My medium as an artist
Acrylic, Pen and Ink, Art Marker, Pencil, Charcoal, Water Color, Oil, Collage… I have even been known to drop my paint brush into a glass of Merlot too. I love them all. 🙂
I have, however; found a huge love for Art Marker. My guess is it all started when I became a mother and life became….interesting. Art Marker was a medium that I could pick up and put down when ever needed. I have always gravitated to black and white pieces, so this just took a natural fit to me.
Art has so much emotion in it, and when I am able to share this with another person or family, it just doesn’t get much better than that.
Have an old photo you want to capture the memory of? Looking for a portrait of your family or pet?
All of my work is quoted individually and based on subject matter, medium and size of piece. All completed work also comes with a Signed Certificate of Authenticity. (So when I am all big and famous, you will receive a nice return on your investment…hehehe)
As a Navy Veteran, proud daughter of a Vietnam Veteran and with several Grandparents, Great Uncles (and Great Aunts), In-Laws, Uncles and Aunts and many Cousins who have all Served or are still Proudly Serving, Patriotism runs strong in our family.
With that said, my work has a tendency to show my love for our country, our flag, the fallen and for those who serve or have served. I guess you could say this girl is one proud American. 🙂
