I have always loved being creative. I enjoy creating pastel illustrations, drawing, watercolor paintings, and more recently, mixed media art. For a time I was an art teacher, but have decided to concentrate on my own artwork. My true passions have always been illustration & making my own jewelry. I enjoy photography as a hobby and love to combine it with my fine art & jewelry skills. I am also a graphic designer & find that all of my skills go nicely together to make books, business cards, greeting cards, etc.
