I would love to share my journey with you! So, here goes…
Over the last 30+ years, I have attempted many things, but never achieved the success or gratification that I always saw in my dreams. I’ve been everything from a vacuum cleaner salesperson (not joking!) to a fresh cut flower farmer, to selling everything from candles to jewelry. I’m an avid DIY gal too, so I have lots of fun projects…sitting around waiting to be done! Ha!
About 7 years ago, a friend (and artist) from our church, introduced me to a lady in town that offers oil painting lessons. Before long, I was in class learning from a professional artist. From my 1st painting, I was hooked. I had finally found my passion…oil painting!
So, that’s how it started…and now, I find myself in my studio every day, planning my next painting, and of course, painting! I see the world differently these days; full of beauty, vibrancy, and such a Glorious palette of colors. Since sharing my first painting…. friends, loved ones, and new acquaintances alike, continue to encourage and inspire me. But, I have to say, my husband is definitely my Biggest Fan!! Love that guy!
For those 7+ years, I have painted Photo Realistic, using photos from travels in the US, and abroad, and even in my own back yard! I especially love the photos my husband takes in his travels to Haiti and Guatemala.
I recently started a new chapter in my painting journey! While I still paint commissioned photos realistically, I also paint in a more Impressionistic style! I took several classes, and my painting world has been rocked!! I’m in love with the new style of using Great Big, Bold Colors to paint happy flowers and gardens!
Thanks for reading about me, and looking around!
