For as long as I can remember I have loved to draw and paint and it was always of some sort of animal, mainly horses, lots and lots of horses. I pursued a career in art and graduated from Florida International University with a degree in Advertising and a minor in Art. I ended up taking a very long hiatus to raise a house full of kids, but courtesy of a hip replacement in 2018, I have found my paintbrush again. In February of 2019, I attended a workshop in Kalispell Montana with renowned pastels artist Lesley Harrison, and have fallen head over heels in love with pastel painting. We had a photography workshop with 10 different amazing animals that will give me enough painting models for the rest of my life! Each painting is an adventure and helps me become a better artist. God has blessed me with a talent and I love sharing it with the world.
