I‘m pretty sure I’m gonna be a ninja when I grow up.
I‘m most inspired by music, lyrics, melodies, all of it, especially if it’s a worship song.
My guilty pleasure is cream cheese. I really think it should be the 5th food group, anything with cream cheese.
If I could have one wish granted, it would be to be able to support my family financially with my art.
I have been married for 25 years to my wonderful husband. We have two adult kids, 22 and 18, a sweet pug, an Australian shepherd mix and a kitty. We are youth pastors, I am children’s pastor, a worship leader and we teach Sunday School. My faith and my family are a huge part of my art journey, as they are the at the core of who I am as a person. Besides art, I like to sing, listen to audio books while I work and shop at Hobby Lobby as much as possible. I like eating out and enjoy a good movie. I like to laugh and make others laugh, and singing in the car with my kids is one of my favorite things ever! I have always been creative, and got into photography and digital scrapbooking when my kids were little. I designed and sold digital scrapbook kits/papers/elements for three years. I fell in love with painting and mixed media when I discovered Bible art journaling in March of 2016. I play in lots of mediums, including, but not limited to, painting (acrylic, oil pastel and watercolor), drawing, digital and paper scrapbooking, mixed media collage, embroidery, paper crafting of all kinds like making paper flowers, and building paper villages, paper bead making, and just got my first package of paper clay and some fun molds, and am going to be making my own clay pieces for mixed media canvases. I love art journaling, as it allows me to experiment and try new things as well as express myself and my inner thoughts and feelings in a tangible way. I am also a writer and am currently working on a daily devotional that includes my writing and art.
