About me

Gender Female
Occupation Mixed Media Artist, Designer and Certified Ranger Educator
Location Springfield, Missouri, United States
Introduction I love art in all forms. Before I had children, I enjoyed all sorts of "artsy" things. But when the babies came, my artistic life gave way to Little Leagues and other school functions that took precedence. Now my babies are grown and having babies of their own. I am rediscovering that creative side of me that has been quietly waiting to emerge for so many years. I absolutely LOVE this artistic journey I am on. I love all things vintage. Taking something brand new and making it look really old fascinates me. I love to incorporate different elements and mixed media in my pieces. I adore teaching classes and different techniques. It gives me such joy to see the pride and sometimes amazement in the faces of my students as they are creating things they never thought they could.
Interests I love all forms of art and enjoy exploring and experimenting with mixed media. I started out paper crafting and I am evolving from there. I am drawn toward the vintage/shabby chic genre as I love it's romantic, sentimental and timeless vibe. I am a huge fan of creating my own Halloween and Christmas home decor pieces as well. I also love teaching classes and sharing my passion for creating art and allowing everyone to explore their own creativity and helping my students to not be afraid to try new things.
