How did you start creating?
I can't remember when I didn't create! I used to draw the figures in the TV Guide and beg my parents to mail it in for me for college- this was at around 7 LOL. Do you remember the turtle in the TV guide? Then I grew up drawing and painting. Stopped after high school, only dabbling now and then. I really jumped back into it in 2010 when I started painting glassware which eventually became a thriving mobile paint and sip company teaching others how to paint on glassware. Sold that in 2019 and was convinced by a friend to try furniture. I LOVE bringing my art to life on canvas and furniture.
Favorite thing you have ever created?
It has to be my painting "Feelings of an Angel". When I paint with my emotions, it just pours out of me and onto the canvas. I couldn't even sell it so it now hangs on the wall in our home.
Favorite Paint and Color to work with?
Favorite paint is by far Eye Love Hue paints and color? So hard to choose because of the subjects that I paint. But think Fortune Sage is a high on the list for me
Something most do not know about you
When I was just out of high school I used to hitch hike everywhere far I wanted to go. I think back now and cannot believe I never became an ID channel episode. But on a career note? That I have done high level accounting for years, owned several businesses and LOVE helping others in business.
Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Truthfully? A singing, performing, baton twirler LOL. Funny how when you are 10 you want to be crazy things LOL
If you could choose anywhere in the world to live, where would it be and why?
I love where we live now but my dream place to live is a huge bunch of property with plots of land that my family could all build and live on so we would all be so close. You know...a family commune LOL
Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me...
Having coffee and figuring out my next power move on my computer
How do you want people to remember you?
When people hear my name, I want them to remember me as a kind, loving person that always loved helping others. But above all...as an amazing mom and nana.
