Virginia, United States
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.

For Christmas, the man of the house took me to my favorite art supply place, The Art Box in Lynchburg! 

The Art Box

I examined everything, marveling at every art supply in the building! Finally, along with some papers, I decided upon these Caran d' Ache Museum 'sticks'. They are magical! I have crated two drawings so far, and I love them, just love them! 

I have also discovered cold wax. I am in love with it as well. Cold wax is so versatile. I have used it when painting, collaging, printing, and creating a cold wax painting (similar to encaustic).  I will be doing more exploring and making more discoveries, and I will keep you updated with new discoveries.

“New Year’s eve is like every other night; 
there is no pause in the march of the universe, 
no breathless moment of silence among 
created things that the 
passage of another twelve months may be noted; 
and yet no man has quite the same thoughts 
this evening that come 
                        with the coming of darkness on other nights.”  

                 ~Hamilton Wright Mabie
