When I was in preschool, my favorite time of day was when I was allowed to draw and paint. As I got older, this love never faded and eventually I went to college to study art. I landed a job teaching high school art and I have never looked back. Now I am retired after 30 years in public schools still doing what I love....creating all types of art for the joy of others to view and instructing art parties for adults, children, and church groups to experience the satisfaction of creativity.
I use many different mediums, such as clay, acrylics, watercolors, and pastels. I create things like dream catchers, painted wine bottles, stained glass, paper flowers, and door hangers. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. However, acrylics are my favorite. Each idea manifests in its way into my own individual style which is to capture an accurate shape of the subject with very colorful brushstrokes. My art parties also offer the options of a variety of mediums and subjects for my clients with step by step instructions.
Art parties are so relaxing and fun.
Animals and nature, especially horses are my passion subject to paint and create. Many of my pieces are directly influenced by these. I love transforming a digital image into my own style of art on canvas or other medium The joy on the faces of my clients when they receive the work warms my heart and drives me to continue to create. Art is a form of creativity that lasts a lifetime, whether I create the work for hanging on a client's wall or the public selects me as their paint party instructor. The art and the memories made are so very inspiring.

A "Live Event" painter is an artist who paints portraits of people and happenings during an actual event. The artist brings their canvas and supplies, sets up at the celebration, and paints the scene that usually includes the newlyweds, their guests, the venue, and the decor.
I will discuss the type of event, the venue, the decor, colors, and overall set up with the client. Then, I will go back to my art studio to create preliminary drawings and make preparations to the canvas. During the event, I will be located strategically to view the happenings of the event. The art piece will be taken back to my studio to make final touches.
