I am blessed to be an artist and am honored when my art connects with someone in a way that is meaningful and brings happiness to their life. God has given me an awesome talent, I am so thankful that I paid attention to it and painted down this journey of faith.

I did go to college in the early 80's and majored in Graphic Design. I took basic design/art classes but really consider myself self-taught. I have plugged away at painting for over 20 years now and thankfully selling just as long.

I love my customers, they have really allowed me to stay at home with my three girls while they were growing up and full-filling my dream to be an artist. All of my art is inspired by the connection I have to Iowa…

In October of 2006 I jumped on the Daily Painting bandwagon and started my own daily painting project, where I try to post at least one original painting a day. So far it has been a great adventure and I have created and sold close to 2000 paintings. Please check out my Blog and Daily Paintings: http:www.artisttonigrote.blogspot.com

My favorite favorite advice is St Theresa's Prayer:

May today there be peace within.

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.

May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you....

May you be content knowing you are a child of God....

Let this presence settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

It is there for each and every one of us
