I started with an early interest in the arts when I won a blue ribbon in first grade for a watercolor painting collage of frogs. I credit my love of art, and the cultivation of it, to my Mom, Janet Dix, who always encouraged my creativity. My mother was an artist, but spent most of her time lovingly raising seven children.

I have been selling my art professionally for the past six years. I have sold on a National and International level reaching far away places as Hong Kong, Netherlands, Japan, Germany, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and just recently, London. The internet allows the greatest visibility for my work and has enabled me to sell over 550 original paintings.

The internet allows the greatest visibility for my work and has enabled me to sell over 550 original paintings. I have presented my work in various galleries here in Ohio including Hudson Fine Art and Framing, the Silverthorne Gallery in Rocky River, and Clip Art Salon and Gallery in Tallmadge.

As far as my educational background in art goes, I dabbled in drawing and Art History classes during college. I was informed by friends and advisors that to make a living as an artist could be very difficult, so I decided to major in Marketing and received my B.B.A from Kent State University. I later went on to receive a diploma in Nursing in 1995, and worked as a PRN nurse for 4 years.

My signature pieces include "Tiny Dancers" and "Square Flowers". I am happily married to my outstanding hubby Tom (we celebrate our fifteenth anniversary in July!). We have three wonderful boys ages 15, 14, and 13. I also have two adopted dogs and a cat: Linger Longer, a rescued, -very fast and addicted to peanut butter-, greyhound, Belvadere "Big Head", a -happy and loveable- rottweiler mix, and Mel, an oversized -comfortable being ornery- tabby cat.
