How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
I have played with art all my life in one form or another. But I started working seriously about 5 years ago. My specialty is mixed media on paper and it is usually faces. I find inspiration from SO many other artists, from daily life, and from nature.
Do you have a favorite Artist?
I have a LOT of favorite artists!!! Linda Vachon and Veronica Cay are two of them.
What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
I became a vegetarian 17 years ago (due to the horrible treatment of other sentient beings) and I am now moving towards being vegan. Almost there.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
Older, lol, and still spending every spare moment I can find creating.
If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
President Barack Obama
How is one way you make money with your art?
I sell my original work.
If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I really don’t want to go anywhere at this point in my life. I am SO happy on the farm and I traveled in my younger years. I just want to stay at home and work. However, I AM going to try to attend a few workshops yet.
What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software

Any advice for young artists?
Work, work, work, play, play, play, put in the hours.
Would you please tell what kind of white pen you use in your. I’ve searched high and low and can’t find a pen that works on watercolor. Thanks. Love your art.
Pretty sure she uses the Signo white gel pen.
I am a self taught admirer and I study your ideas and such and duplicate to get a feel for how i need to think upon drawing my subjects and I hope this is not offensive to you. Also, I was wondering if you use dip pens for drawing with the acrylic inks, and I assume you use brushes for the background and such. Your reply will be greatly appreciated and I love your work!@
I LOVE your work . . . it’s right up my alley. . . colors, wild personas, lines that tickle my imagination. . . makes me want to create. Oh, I can’t forget what first attracted me to your work . . . the FACES!! I’m a watercolor portrait artist, trying trying trying to loosen up . . . would give a lot to have just a pinch of your playfulness. I have a saying. . . so many faces, so little time!
Thank you so much for your work. You are really an inspiration and I look forward to seeing more!😉
Thank you for your impressive art. It is like a mirror of certain moments in our life. When one looks at your art it makes us feel less alone in certain moments. Bless you.
