My Story

My life changed in 2014 after having breast cancer. I am grateful my cancer is gone and I am feeling well again. However, this life event was truly a wakeup call. It was during my recovery from my last chemotherapy that I had the thought to make candles. Let me say that I had never made a candle in my life! However, I researched on how to make candles and I made my first batch using soy wax and lavender essential oil. About six months later I started to make soap via melt and pour method and lavender was my first batch of soap. I love the peace that comes with taking in the smell of essential oils while creating my soap and candles. In 2017, I was encouraged to give painting a try. The first time I painted was at a local art studio and we were to paint a lavender field. This painting is now my business logo. For my paintings, I love to paint on wood and I look for salvaged wood because I love the vintage look. I know a painting is done when it makes me smile!

I have been a nurse for over 20 years, completed an aromatherapy certificate program, and now launched Simply Ann’s Lavender. When I am not creating then I like spending time with my two dogs and fostering puppies for a local shelter. It is an honor to be given this opportunity to follow my heart, share these gifts, and be on this journey with you.

    I am a breast cancer survivor. A creative side opened for me and I started making candles, soap, and then painting. I am a nurse, an artist, and this summer I started writing a book to share more about my breast cancer journey.

    My pups keep me company when I am making candles, soap, and painting. Helen is a rat terrier and adopted in 2017 and Fred is a black lab adopted in 2009. They are the best pups and I love them both very much.

    My Mom has always been skilled at sewing and she makes beautiful quilts too. With her sewing skills I now have one of a kind curtains, tea towels, totes, and market bags using vintage and fabric with my paintings on it. Thank You Mom!

    My mom is my helper when it comes to anything sewing. Making tote and market bags was her idea.
