About the Artist
After 20+ years of running my own business/corporation in the field of Early Childhood & Special Education - I discovered that I love creating and painting. Old world looks, textured painting, faux finishes, decoupage, multi media, digital manipulation - I'm fascinated with combining techniques to create both physical and visual texture. I'm very often found with plaster on my hands, glue on my shirt and paint in my hair - somewhere between self-taught artist and mad scientist. Perhaps it's attributable to the many years I spent developing multisensory activities and curriculums for very young and special needs children - I want to create art that is more than something to just look at. I'm absolutely thrilled to watch someone look at one of my paintings and automatically raise their hands to touch it or look at it from different angles and then turn around and say "how did you do that??"
After 18 months as the decorative painter & class instructor at a wonderful shop and paint retailer in Edwardsville, IL, I decided to become a retailer myself. In Nov of 2018 I became the very first USA retailer for an amazing product called WoodUbend moldings and appliques. They are a magical way to add dimension and character to your art, upcycling and home decor. I am now the USA Liaison for WoodUbend so if you would like to know more just let me know! I am proud to be a member of the Influencer community and an affiliate for the exquisite Jolie Paint Line. I am also a retailer of Saltwash texture additive - a fun product which can be added to virtually any paint for a sun washed chippy finish.
I enjoy writing tutorial blog posts for the website and as of 2020 will be writing tutorials and articles for a creative painting publication (more on that soon!)
On a personal note - I'm a mother of 3 daughters that have grown up to be outstanding humans (just a little proud). I'm grammy to my grandson - my ,pride and joy, Gordon - and an avid dog mom
