Thanks for visiting!
Let me introduce myself. I am an artist from the beautiful state of New Mexico, also known as the Land of Enchantment. In New Mexico, everything from our green chile, weather, and air balloons are hot.
I love to create art, almost as much as I love to be with my three girls. My work varies from pastels, pencil, watercolor, scratch art, mixed media, computer art, painting and other creative media. I love drawing animals. I have always found wildlife fascinating. I’m adding more New Mexico inspired art to my collection of drawings. In 2015, my pastel “Trading My Heels For Combat Boots: My Tribute to Women in the Military” won first place in the Special Recognition category in the National Veteran’s Creative Arts Festival. I am the author and illustrator of “They Don’t Make Socks for Chicken Toes,” “Adventures of the Pink Mantis: Escape of the Pink Mantis” & the “Sugar & Spice” Series (Jack O’lanterns). My goal is to write children’s stories that teach life lessons. I want to open up new worlds of fun and make someone smile, or even better- laugh. Thanks to everyone who has inspired me to keep writing.
Here are some samples of my art…
