My love for photography began as a young girl when I was given a Kodak camera by my parents. As the years passed, and my cameras evolved, I enjoyed capturing candid shots and precious moments in the lives of my daughter and son that slip away much too quickly: the first year of their lives, their first tooth, first steps, first haircut, etc.
My creative career began as a floral designer, and I transitioned to silk floral design at the Mount Prospect Hobby Lobby for 13 years. During that time I did some freelance work, as well. I studied art briefly in school, but basically I am a self-taught acrylic artist who likes to express meaningful messages through many of the paintings that I create and name. Creating fluid art is always an exciting adventure because regardless of what colors are used, as the paint flows onto your canvas you always end up with a one-of-a-kind work of art!
Oftentimes I use elements in nature such as feathers, sea shells, and leaves in order to add depth and interest to the paintings that I create. At times I also add glitter or crushed glass to some of them to add an even deeper dimensional quality to them.
Last year (2022), I began displaying and selling my artwork and photography at art fairs and craft shows. I enjoy interacting with people on a personal level and creating custom artwork based on their favorite colors and meaningful elements.
Thank you very much for stopping by today!
God Bless You
