I like to work in varied media because I enjoy the differences each has to offer. I have included artwork pieces in my shop that could be enjoyed by adults, teens and children. There are no smokers in my house so all of my offerings will be smoke free. Besides spending time on my art work I also enjoy watching reality shows on T.V., love animals and can't stay away from anything chocolate. Thank you for your interest in me and my work.
