Welcome to my website and blog where I share my life and my love of all things creative. 

I have enjoyed a varied career as a professional artist for most of my life. My artistic journey began as a fashion illustrator for a department store. When that door shut I reinvented myself as a freelance illustrator for a variety of clients including Walt Disney World, Darden Restaurants and several magazines and book publishers. Currently my art and surface designs are licensed for a variety of gift, dinnerware and home decor products. Outdoor art festivals sent me in the direction of fine art where I continue to explore both abstract and impressionist painting.    

I'm sure as long as I breathe, I will never get tired of learning new ways to express my creative passion. I feel truly blessed.

And so the journey continues!
