Does every nation have a National Poetry Day? I'll celebrate it every day of the year! Here's one of my first illustrated poems, called By The Ocean At Night. I had done an oil painting and recently got Corel Painter, so I digitized it for fun. This is one of my favorite poems. BY THE [...]
Just got Marcelo and Omar's CD in my hands. Another music project that I did the artwork for! Sul Das Gerais is a beautiful CD and I am pleased they are so happy with the audio and visual work!
I've decided to paint at night in the Lounge waiting to close up. Just have to be careful with getting paint on my nicer work clothes! It's coming along! Next pic will reveal the dandelion(s)... Finally! Even though I stilllll have more grass to fill in. I never realized how much detail really goes into [...]

I have faith in humanity and believe we are all good people, some just act badly. Knowing this is what fuels my passion for helping others through creativity. It's important that I do what I do. Because people and helping them is important. So then isn't it incredible how so few can give problems to so many? [...]
Trying to keep the artist in me alive though a small business owner. I never anticipated this growing up, that I would be anything but an artist. But I enjoy helping my husband achieve his dreams, and I know he can't do it without me! I just want some encouragement to focus on what is [...]
