I've been a maker since I was a child. My mother has a picture of me as a little girl sporting fancy milk carton shoes. I began painting soon after that , and I've never looked back. I like bright colors and whimsical subjects--birds, flowers, hearts, and houses. My paintings are well suited for vibrant happy homes. Including uplifting messages in some of my paintings is one of my favorite things to do. I want to encourage others through my work. Bringing smiles, joy, and light to others lives and homes are some of my chief goals.
My primary job is wife and mother to our 5 sons 3 of whom came to us through adoption 5 years ago. The last few years I taught K-12 Art at a small Christian school. However, this year I am home and loving it! I volunteer at our sons' school, substitute teach, and MAKE. I will never stop being a maker. It's in my blood.
If I could choose anyone in the world to have one of my paintings hanging in their home, it would be you. My hope is to bring you cheer through my paintings. Why wouldn't I choose you? This is why I make. It's for you.
Romans 5:5 says this, "And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given to us." It is my desire to be a communicator of Christ's love, hope, and joy. This is one way I do it.
Come by my booth, happydreamer, on October 25 in Boerne and say hello. I'd love to meet you! There will be bits of lovely for all budgets. Wool felt door knob dangles/ornaments, paintings of all sizes, funky wooden houses, and more. I sure hope I'll see you there! It's gonna be a fun day!
