I often fin myself at a loss for words. My heart and my mind overflows with thoughts and feelings, though my mouth can't always make the connection. I started writing a long time ago In hopes of getting the feelings out and it flows out of me with no hesitation. My two girls are my inspiration, and my reason for livings. I am absolutely blessed to be their mother and I want nothing more than to have them look back and say they are proud to be my children.

I attended North Carolina School of the Arts about 3 years ago; focusing on design and illustration. Art has always been a passion more than a hobby for me. I receieved a high score of 5 from the collegeboard on my high school portfolio senior year as we'll. I would rather sit in my room all hours of the night and finish a painting rather than ever see it remain unfinished. I am currently a fine arts major at Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte North Carolina. I work well in stressful situations and I've always worked in a quick manner when time is short. I've worked with a variety of mediums including acrylics,oils, oils pastels,chalk,ink,and graphite.

After receiving my BFA at Massachusetts College of Art as a painting major, I continued courses in illustration at RISD the following January through June. My most recent full time employer was William Beyer Associates on Newbury Street in Boston. That was in1980/81, and I’ve been doing full time freelance illustration ever since. From 1981 to today, I’ve created work in all fields associated with illustration: editorial,advertising, corporate, and publishing. In both children and adult venues. Books, magazines, ads, brochures, greeting cards, board games, etc. Employing directories of Illustration, through the years I’ve been able to market myself literally everywhere those books are distributed, which has allowed my business to enjoy continued growth. I’ve focused my style into mostly a pen and ink /watercolor combination. Us-ing a dip pen, I look for that spot between cartoon and representational, not too styl-ized, trendy or gimmicky but alive, sophisticated and fresh. I’m always aware of the economy and the flair of the line, and try to spotlight that. After inking, things really come alive with the application of watercolor, whether traditional brush or electronic stylus-on-tablet. I find myself often drawing all kinds of people in all kinds of situations. I enjoy employing the aerial viewpoint as well and have been called to work in that mode in varying degrees on many occasions. I have done fun and funky aerial views of Boston for Hilton Hotels, the rocky coast of Bermuda for the Wyndham Bermuda Resort, the Hills of Southern Connecticut for Quinnipiac University, Western North Carolina, and Hollywood California to name a few. One thing I can say -at the completion of every project, the client is always quite pleased, as am I. Please check out my website. Thanks.
