I was a preschool teacher for 20 years; I quit to pursue my artwork full time. I paint on canvas, wood, metal, clay - if it can be painted on, I'll try it! I also do mixed media art, collage work, and beaded jewelry. Although I have heard my work be described as everything from tattoo art, whimsical folk art, and pop art, I do not label my work. I create what I know and feel.
