I was born an artist. From the first time I colored in my coloring book I was hooked. I hope everyone finds a passion in life like I have. My greatest satisfaction is sharing my passion and knowing that someone is going to enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Born and raised in Northern California, I enjoyed lots of summer trips to Lake Tahoe, and for that I'm so grateful. California is a beautiful place and what an influence it has had on my art over the years! Now retired in Ohio, my goal is to be sure all of my art projects have a home where the world can view and share. This may sound simple, but it's not. To this day I still have a minimum of 5-6 art projects in process at any given time. I love it!

In the past, I had a teddy bear business, an art gallery, a cater company, and an interior design firm. I have painted, sewn, drawn, built... you name it, there's a good chance I've done it.

Art is what makes me happy, it's what I love so much, and I hope you find some cool stuff here. I plan to showcase guest bloggers and guest artists on this page who share my same passion and motivation. Keep your eyes open, you don't want to miss out!

If you have anything you'd like to see here, just send me a  message and I'll make it happen. Thank you for joining Artsy Kafe.
