About me

My Bio:

I am a wife to my best friend from college, and the mother to three daughters. I recently relocated to Des Moines, Iowa, after living in Kansas for 38 years. I currently work as a mixed media artist.
Other than my amazing family, the thing I eat, sleep, and breathe is mixed media art and craft. I adore creating scrapbook layouts and canvases, tags, cards, and altered projects with an eclectic, free, and soulful vibe.
In the time when I’m not creating, I also enjoy photography, sewing, reading, thrifting, swimming and snorkling. Most days, I also spend at least a little time planning, journaling and dreaming, about relocating to Oahu, Hawaii; my favorite place on earth.

My Style:

My style is grungy, eclectic, very layered, and almost always includes mixed media. I always lean toward the unique in my work. I like to create art from my heart, and put love and truth into everything I do. My crafting and techniques have frequently been called soulful, fresh, and inspiring.
