I always dreamed of the day I could stay home and paint and now I am living that dream!!
You can find me in my studio everyday and sometimes late in the night ..( when I cant sleep... I find my slippers and head for my canvas and paint !! ) My little dog Ivy keeps me company unless she's curled up and cozy next to my wonderful husband Tim.
We have 5 children and 8 grandkids...we feel very blessed and tired sometime!!
