My life is simple:
I am a self-taught artist.
I paint with watercolors and acrylics.
I carve and pull my own block prints.
I make soldered charms and wire wrapped bead necklaces.
I play with paper & old books, making wreaths & love tokens.
I design hand-embroidered, wool applique, fiber art.
I love God, my family, my pets, nature, & simple joys.
I love finding beauty in everything!

Besides being a work at home artist, I am a wife and mom (my kids are now grown!). I live on the Cumberland Plateau on the border of middle and east Tennessee and the central and eastern time zone. It's a beautiful rural area where my family and I enjoy our home along with 2 German Shepherd Dogs, 1 Siberian Husky, and 1 Beagle / Corgi mix. :)
