A lot has happened over the past two years.  I have moved from making clipart and maintaining my store on Teachers Pay Teachers to strictly painting.  In my busy, chaotic life, I have found so much peace in painting.
I do mainly watercolors, and what started as simply making watercolor circles for digital use, has turned into painting fur babies!  I absolutely LOVE animals, and people love having paintings of them.
Losing a pet is a heart-wrenching, traumatic experience.  I have had to put my puppy and kitty down, and it was no easy task.  I cried like a 2-year-old.  I felt like a piece of me died with them.  So now my heart feels the need to paint those fur babies we have had to let go.
But I don't just paint fur babies.  A dear friend lost  friend last year.  She was very young, and she left a husband and  4-year-old son behind.  I had to paint her, also.

My newest endeavor is illustrating!  I knew when George Ella Lyon came to visit my school that I wanted to be an illustrator.  I love her books, and even though she did not illustrate her books, I was still excited about meeting her and with the prospect of one day illustrating my own book.
God saw to it that my new dream would come true.  I was approached by published author April Renner Curtsinger about illustrating her book.  How could I say no?
Check back towards the end of this year for my first book to be completed.

Enjoy!
