About

Thanks for checking out Encourage Creations!

I am a full-time artist and have been designing and creating ever since I can remember. Originally from the South, I've lived in 3 gems of the East coast: Charleston, SC, Savannah, GA and Boston, MA. Over the years I've been a sign-painter, bartender, window dresser, Peace Corps Volunteer, designer/coordinator of themed restaurants, exhibit sculptor for the New England Aquarium, exhibiting artist and a high school art teacher for ten years.

I hope you will see my artwork as a way to reach out to someone you care for, a way to banish discouragement, a way to lift spirits... and that includes your own!
