So excited, my custom embosser just arrived in the mail today and works great! Kudos to CustomEmbosserPro.com for your great customer service. You will find this little logo on all my giclee prints moving forward. I love little embellishments that make art pieces just a little more special.
Well the 2015 Madison Park Art Walk opening was last Friday night. The weather was beautiful and people came out early and numbers to enjoy the art and food provided by Starbucks and the local merchants. I have to say, it was an exciting event, even though I was little nervous and concerned that people would have a hard time finding my show because it was at the end of the street, not directly on Madison. But they did find the spot and traffic flowed continually all evening. Thank you to everyone who came out, friends, family and supporters of the arts. Time to start prepping for my next show.

Just finished this one today. Started out as a tree illustration and turned into a pretty little landscape of my childhood house and farm. Well, I left the farm out of it this time and focused on the mailbox at the end of the lane. My mom and dad still live there and I still love getting letters.
I created this little Parrotlet image for my dear neighbor who just happens to have one named Keewee. It is the sweetest bird and is just starting to warm up to people.
This a new piece for a new baby. Sadie Jane gets a new art piece in her bedroom.
Illustration I did for Mother's Day a few years back. Being a mother myself, I know the roller coaster ride of raising two boys and the joys and challenges of motherhood. Cheers to all the mothers out there!
