Animal portraits are my favorite. During the process of creating my pieces, I go through life, where certain songs inspire me for different animals, I remember how I felt. I can look at each painting and remember everything. They are little reminders of the chapters in my life that I am sharing.
I love knowing that threads have played an important part in our human history for thousands of years. If I could magically produce a weaver from eons ago I know we could happily sit together creating cloth. I love combining colors and textures on my loom reflecting what is on my mind & in my heart.

I have painted for over twenty years. As an engineer, I felt I needed more exposure to the relaxation and the self-expression artistic painting could give me. I thoroughly enjoy evaluating the scenes Mother Nature loans me to express my own values and feelings.
I have such fun hunting for unique and unusual beads. Classes in various techniques continue to inspire me to always feel free to experiment with new designs. I feel so much pleasure when a client smiles and shows excitement as she holds a necklace and says, "This one is perfect!"
After putting my art experience on the shelf for years, I decided to explore every opportunity to be creative once again. This organization and this community have provided inspiration and instruction to do just that. I am currently using alcohol ink to capture landscapes of Texas.
