This is not only a blog about my artwork and why I do what I do, but it is also about fond memories of people, places and times past. I’ve thrown in movies that I enjoy and would like to share, as well as thoughts about life and lessons learned. I hope you enjoy my blog.
A Little background history:
I am a busy mother of 3 (now adult) with much imagination, I have been creating and marketing my illustrations, portraits and prints since my early teen years, as art has always been my deepest passion. Many years ago,when I finished high school, I didn’t have the funds to go to Art School as a full-time student, so I took night courses and continuing education classes in Art and Illustration with the Rhode Island School of Design. This gave me the confidence, the knowledge and the tools I needed to someday fulfill my dream of being Licensed, becoming a freelance designer for a well-known Greeting Card Company or to even own an online shop, like my present Etsy Shop.
My artwork style ranges from whimsical to realistic, with some photography mixed in. But all images here have a common theme, to inspire and uplift. My goal has always been to try and create images that are not only pleasing to the eye, but to also stir up emotion in the viewer. Making a connection is my ultimate goal.
Most of my artwork centers around children and their innocence, the Amish, angels and whimsical characters. I also love to illustrate quotes that are important to me.
Also, I have recently set up a new shop on Etsy at :
It’s a lot of work, so it may take some time to add the many prints of paintings you may be seeing posted here and being created throughout my blog, but fear not, it will all get done! I presently am setting up a new and fresher website, which seems to be taking longer than I thought it would. But I hope to have it up and running soon, and I will post it here on my blog as soon as it is ready, I promise!
Thank you so much!!!!
