Thank you for visiting my website! I have been painting and drawing all my life and since receiving my Master of Fine Arts degree in 2008, I have been teaching college level art at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. I also recently completed a children’s book with local authors Summer and Madeline Hays. It’s about a somewhat ditzy mother quail and her 7 rambunctious babies. Please take a look!

I started this business to help support my 13 rescued dogs and cats.( Yes, I am the crazy cat/dog lady.) I have been adopting and placing animals for many years, all of whom have graced my life with indescribable joy.  Because of my deep appreciation and love for all creatures, I donate 10% of all my commissions to animal welfare groups. I have several groups I can recommend, or you can choose your own favorite organization.

I would  like to thank Ashe County Arts Council for their choice to gift me with a grant for the Regional Artist Project of Northwest North Carolina. I am using the much needed funds to help me get this little venture rolling.

You’ll also find a heading in the menu for “Elephant Art.”  This is the work I did while working towards my Master of Fine Arts degree. The drawings and paintings you’ll find were all inspired by my research into this magnificent creature.

Thanks for looking,
