Creating art has always been a natural desire in my heart. As a young child, growing up in Dayton, Ohio, I received lots of positive feedback and accolades for my raw artistic talent. After high school, I kept up drawing as a favorite pastime. Eventually, I planned to go to Art School to pursue my passion. Instead, I found myself working in non-art related jobs to support my growing family (who are my world). And my dream of becoming the next Picasso was put on hold ; )
It was not until years later (after being laid off from work) that an overwhelming desire came over me to paint, even though I had never painted before. The feeling was so intense that the next day, I decided to invest a portion of my savings in art supplies, materials, and books to start my career as a full-time professional, self-taught artist. During 2005, I painted and drew over 60 artworks including figuratives, florals, landscapes, and abstracts in spiritual, inspirational, or thought-provoking scenes. I also created promotional materials, custom paintings and personalized portraits for small businesses and individual clients in my hometown.
Since January 2006, I have been showing and selling my original art online. And the response has really been amazing! I feel honored and blessed to know that my artwork makes people happy. To date, my works are hung in homes and corporations across the U.S., with some pieces abroad. My paintings are also featured on numerous blogs, treasuries, websites, and other media.
