About

Gratitude is the inspiration behind all of my work. Overwhelming, indescribable gratitude for my sweet beautiful sons, Scott and Teddy who are the joys of my life, and gratitude for four angel babies whose genders and names I will not know until I meet them in heaven.

I know the joy of looking into your baby’s eyes for the first time and knowing that your life is changed forever, and I know the sorrow of anticipating that moment and then discovering it will not come in this life.

I am reminded with every painting of that miracle, as new moms, aunts and friends write me with their orders and share their brief stories. I smile every time I imagine my paintings touching the life and world of these precious little ones.

My story as a mother is in those paintings. My joy, my loss, and my healing, as I open my eyes to all I have. It is a blessing every time I paint to be reminded of all the miracles, innocence and love in this world. It is a joy to share my story with you in this small way.
