During the time in my life when it came time to decide what I was going to do with my life I did not think much about my two loves, because it did not seem possible to make a living with art or mermaids. I did finally figure out that I could make a living with art and became a middle school art teacher.

I did finally figure out that I could make a living with art and became a middle school art teacher. While teaching I taught myself to watercolor and began with a simple subject and something dear to me. I started doodling mermaids and began throwing paint on them. My thought process was to make a 1,000 of them in hopes that the last would at least be better than the first.
Several paintings later my husband suggested I try to sell them. Thousands of mermaids later I am still selling them. I quit teaching to stay home and raise my children, which was made possible by art and mermaids.
I am proof that you can make a living doing something you love. I really do love it. And I love the people I meet through it.

I currently live in South Jordan, Utah with my husband and 3 children.
