My art career originated with creating pencil and charcoal portraits in her youth. Once I became a mother of three children, and had the greatest joy of my life, I wanted to memorialize all of the precious moments, with a media that was more substantial than a photo. I now help the people in my community capture their own precious moments, using oil and canvas. Creating a more permanent memory to bring joy to everyone out there, in the same way. Love of both nature and family has been the main inspiration for my work.
I now work full-time as an artist, most recently showcasing my work at local galleries. She resides in Spokane where I make the daily walk to my studio. In 2022, I placed 2nd at the Lilac Festival Art Show, and took the Bronze Award for the Camelback Gallery’s International “Paint My Pet” competition.
I do custom painting collaborations and offer my work for sale at my website (below).
Let me know what you can dream up and I will see if I can memorialize it for you or we can start with your favorite photo.
