Hey ya'll! I've got an interview with Book Reader Magazine up now. Check it out.
Last week I participated in the 24-Hour Show at the Arts Mill for the very first time. Just a single day to create a painting? I didn't know how that would happen. My process usually takes weeks, between drying and layers and... oh my, this was a challenge. And it was a GOOD one. Ooooh, I enjoy a
I'm so thrilled to announce my very first fiction book, The Space Between Dreaming, is out now! Here's a synopsis: Grace and Jane both crave family but for much different reasons. Grace longs for the child she was never able to conceive and Jane for the new family she will have once she
I'm celebrating the release of my first novel with a sale on art. (Cuz you know, art and writing are connected for me. And for many of you!) I'll share more about the book soon but in the meantime, get 20% off functional pieces (totes, pillows, decks, etc.) and original paintings. Just use
Today's post for #21daysinmyartworld is about celebration. Specifically, celebrating something you created or that otherwise came about through your art. Just the ability to make art has always been a blessing to me. Long before I did this for a job. I felt I was able to connect with God and my

Today's prompt for #21daysinmyartworld is about my smallest painting. I'll admit, I don't like working small. I like canvases that I can stand up to and stretch to fill with paint. But recently I completed this dollhouse turned into a minature art gallery, with tiny paintings and hand-stitched
I'm on Day 15 of #21daysinmyartworld (although at some point I got the days mixed up - go figure!) but today's prompt is "How I Title My Paintings." Is that interesting to people? Would you buy a painting if you liked the title but not the image? I have found that if I'm on the fence about
A special thank you to the Art Bar (MKE) for being such a wonderful supporter of artists. They sold some of my works at their annual holiday sale, and as my husby picked up the rest someone stopped him and bought this original on the way out to the car! This painting is titled "Exodus."
Latest WIP. I've been getting involved with stitching the last few months, especially slow stitched art pieces and journals. With these, I combine paint, beads, paper, fabric, and of course, lace. (A constant in my art pieces 🤪) At night, I typically sketch in my art journal but lately I've been
