I feel like art has always been a part of my life. My grandmother was an artist and there are so many memories that I have regarding doing art with her. All of the grandkids would come over one at a time and my grandmother would paint a picture at our side while we painted the same one. Yet in the last few years something new has awakened in my soul regarding art. There is more for me to discover with paint and a brush. I’ve taken classes with Elizabeth St Hilaire Nelson, Jane LaFazio, Kelly Rae Roberts, Jane Davies and my favorite teacher Joan Moody. The things I value are faith, growth, authenticity, creativity and vulnerability. I’m drawn to pictures of rest, simplicity and colors.
