About

I have always had a passion for creating; to the point that I became a high school art teacher.  It was through my search for projects for my art club that I discovered a new passion of creating sock dolls, which I call Mizzles.  The Mizzles instantly became inspiration for paintings and story ideas at a time when I hadn't been practicing my art. I had no idea that it would lead to me exhibiting my work, participating in art walks, sharing my work online, and working on my MFA in illustration.  In making my Mizzle dolls and creating the illustrations, I discovered the essence of myself in embracing and nurturing my inner child and the fun of watching people interact with my dolls and illustrations and see them embrace their own inner child has been such a delight! 

The other side of my artist style is realistic portraits, which I love because so much can be expressed with such subtle curves and shadows.  Plus, people are so beautiful!  I feel like I get to know the people I paint on such an intimate level by painting them. 

My main medium is watercolor, but through my MFA program I have developed a strong love for digital art.  I am coming into my last year of my MFA  working on my thesis project, which includes writing and illustrating a story that includes my Mizzles. With one artistic journey nearing its end, I thought it would be great to start a new one here.  It has been such an amazing journey to share my art making with friends, families, and my community... and now, hopefully with YOU!!!
