As a third generation artist I fell in love with the creative life at a very early age. It was always the grow up and become an artist...and I did.


The journey that has brought me to this point in my creative life has had its challenges as well as its rewards. All of my life's crazy events have landed me in an amazing place.


I'm a Florida girl and studied art at the University of South Florida. I have a awesome family that has supported me in every imaginable artistic endeavor.  A supportive hubby, a couple of great kids, wonderful parents, and two dogs and four cats...they make it all matter.


My main focus is art licensing so I spend a great deal of time painting & illustrating art for surface designs on stationery, gift ware, home and garden decor.  I also work with  manufacturers developing new concepts for product lines.  You can find my original art on a variety of products sold worldwide with many new items coming to market in 2017 & 2018.


I love flea markets, shopping for vintage items (and junk) that I can re-purpose.


I believe everyone should own at least one rescue animal.
