Art, Life, and Everything In-Between

I grew up in rural Minnesota & 3 things I can't remember being without are - a deep & abiding love of animals, an insatiable desire to learn, & an equally insatiable desire to put marks on paper (& other readily accessible surfaces!). Read More»

Me & my (white) Shaaaaaaadow! :)

I create beautiful, inspirational artworks to
enrich your quality of life.


Drawing upon my experiences & passion, I reach out & Connect with people, using both my illustrative & fine arts backgrounds to bridge the gap between an intangible idea & a creative visual statement.

Whether my goal is to preserve a Precious Memory
in unique form or to present an invigorating, fresh look on an everyday object, I strive to make my artwork a Bright Celebration of Life.

If you have an Idea, I have the talent & training to bring it to Life.

I invite you to Whisper Your Idea In My Ear.

THANK YOU for Supporting Living Artists!

No, I don't mind if you Friend Me, in fact, I would love it! ^_^ (Just make sure your connection can handle an image or two for almost every post I make.) Please understand, however, that I have a very long list of people who watch my journal, and I can't friend each and every person back, because I don't have enough time to give everyone the personal attention they deserve. I'm very sorry, and please don't take it personally, I just need to spend time painting instead of commenting on people's journals, or my own journal would be pretty empty.

And if you want to see more frequent posts by me, it's probably because I'm busy posting over in my other Blog.

Thank you so much for your understanding, and welcome! ^_^
