I am an artist, a writer, a mom and a wife. I have lived, loved and laughed as often as life has allowed. I have created most of my life, not all of it I would call art, but all of it came from my heart. I promise to endeavor to bring you one of a kind, unique creative expressions from my hands to your eyes. May you enjoy perusing through these entries, and if you are interested you can find more of my work here:
