Here’s a little bit about me and the artwork that is... All about You!

I am blessed to be married to a wonderful retired Army helicopter pilot, mom to our awesome son and his beautiful wife, 2 gorgeous daughters each married to their amazing husbands, 3 darling granddaughters and 2 adorable grandsons.

While our three children were growing up, I was a stay at home mom doing these PersonalizedSketches since 1985. With grown children, my hubby and I are empty-nesters. Although I am working as a dental hygienist, I have been able to keep up with the art I love to do. I'm excited about what lays ahead: meeting all of you in the world of ETSY!

Growing up with a dad in the Air Force and then marrying a military man, I have experienced and loved the many places we have called home! And have me…

Growing up with a dad in the Air Force and then marrying a military man, I have experienced and loved the many places we have called home! And have met many wonderful people through the drawings that I do.

...& I have always enjoyed many different types of arts and crafts, such as quilting, sewing, crocheting, acrylics, stained glass, and trying new things… but I especially LOVE drawing the PersonalizedSketches with ink!

I am a self-taught artist. The first personalized name drawing that I did was for my brother as a gift in 1985. At the frame shop, where I went to buy a mat and frame, the employees asked if I do the drawings in any subject and any name…. and so it began :o)

...@ one show on Dec 6, 1986, I had taken orders…3 days later, our younger daughter was born on Dec 9! I was working on orders while in the hospital, in order to be sure to have them done in time for my customers to give for Christmas gifts! (Actually, I ended up getting more orders from the nurses that saw the ones I was working on :o)

Personalized Sketches have been sent throughout the United States and internationally. Over the years, many have become the proud and happy owners of Personalized Sketches. One of these Personalized Sketches was drawn as an illustration for an activity book of a great fundraising entity- ThanksUSA. (Check them out: ThanksUSA.org)

Many drawings have been done in every image imaginable and with names of the most popular to the most unique! So, YES, just let me know what you want drawn and with what name, and I'll be happy to do it. I take the name of your choice and write the name many, many times to render the design/image of your choice. On acid-free, medium weight paper with fade-proof ink, each are drawn individually.
