About Me

Hi! :)

I live near St. Louis, Missouri with my supportive husband and our son (dog) Jack, one big happy family.

Drawing has always been a hobby of mine from when I could hold a pencil until now. To save books and walls from graffiti, my grandmother came up with the brilliant idea one day to give me a huge bin full of all her used office paper to scribble all over. She saved important paperwork at her office, and gave me supplies that lasted a year!

Of course this started as just something fun to do, maybe a cure for boredom...  I have no formal training, completely self-taught.  I have a few artsy relatives, so maybe I can blame it all on them.  I also have a lot of supportive friends and family.  Their encouragement and compliments have kept me trying to improve over the years. I have a lot to learn and I hope to continue to grow.

There are lot's of my drawings floating around this world  because until now I've given most of them away.  One of my good friends told me that I should try to make a business out of it. She said, "Why in the world aren't you doing this for a living?!" And I was like, "I know, right?!"  I need motivation like that!  I took her advice but just took baby steps. I sold my 1st portrait in 2008.

Thank you for checking out my gallery, 
and I hope to form a relationship
 with you in the future!
