"I live on pretty Lake Erie in Erie, PA. It is here that I create my artwork every day in my little purple studio (yes, it's painted purple...yay for purple!) and I'm truly blessed to be a full time indie artist. I received my BA in Graphic Design from Mercyhust College in Erie, PA. After college, I quickly entered the corporate world, all the while longing for something more creative and free...so, I started Art Savvy Studio and it is my homage to creative imagination and creative self expression. Growing up, I was blessed to have parents who nurtured, supported and guided my artistic self! I was the girl who preferred paintbrushes, paint and canvas to dolls and dress-up!
I married one of my very best friends and we've known each other since 5th grade! My husband is extremely supportive of my artistic endeavors and never complains of all the creative chaos I tend to strew about the house! You will often find him in my studio helping out whenever he feels he wants to be creative! We have four beautiful furry kids! Lilly is our newest, she's a 10 month old Boxer/Dachshund Mix, she is a funny combination that most people find intriguing and if I do say so myself, she is one of the prettiest puppies on the planet. She is so full of spunk and personality! Then comes Quincy, he is our 11 year old Miniature Pinscher who is loving and sweet, he tends to lose his patience with the newest member of the family...however, you can tell he really does love her! Tori is my 16 year old beautiful, loyal and wise Calico kitty who is most certainly the matriarch of our brood! Then there is sweet and petite Izzy, whom my husband rescued and brought home one cold and wintry day. She is an all black kitty with gem like green eyes. My husband found her down by a creek bed, cold and hungry and she snuggled up in his coat and she's been with us ever since!"
