About

I have always been connected to art in some way as long as I remember. I was asked in second grade by my teacher to draw a realistic picture of the nativity for my elementary school play. I crocheted doll baby booties for myself and my friends at school on recess. I also started sewing clothing for myself in third grade. I began oil painting lessons at about this same period of time.
I married and began my family at an early age. In my years of parenting I had some opportunities to continue my artwork. My interests changed to refinishing antique furniture, decorating my home, and being a big "do it yourselfer".

About ten years ago I developed painful arthritis in my spine and muscle pain. I at that point had started a pillow cover business on an auction website. I was forced to stop my sewing business and I had several very difficult years trying to find a job I could physically do without painful consequences.
I was introduced to vintage and antique postcards and other art prints. I learned how to use software that helps me bring back life to these beautiful and fun works of art. I have always been enjoyed decorative magnets. I started making magnets as a fun an inexpensive way to buy and display artwork.
Dachshunds are faithful and loving dogs. I have been narrowing down my interest from an assortment of subjects to concentrating mainly on dachshund artwork. I find many enthusiastic Doxie lovers.
I enjoy spending time on the computer restoring and enhancing these images of the past. I am always pleased when I see the finished product from my work.
