When I'm not creating, you can find me on Facebook or Twitter promoting my work, but also hanging out with my husband by a campfire, boating on our lake, or out for an ATV ride.

I am very proud and active member of the following Etsy teams:
* Visual Artists Street Team (VAST) (search for "vast team")

Favorite Quote: “Now and then when I get an idea for a picture, I think, how ordinary. Why paint that old rock? Why not go for a walk instead? But then I realize that to someone else it may not seem so ordinary.” -- Georgia O'Keeffe (artist, 1887-1986)
