I strive to create touching and whimsical art that inspires and stirs the imagination. LIVE Podcast Interview Episode 31: www.6pod4.com

Welcome to my world of art! My process of creating art begins almost every morning, after or during a few cups of coffee. In nice weather I often sit on my porch to work. The paintings usually begin by watching people, sketching and pics I take. I do a lot of sketching! I also collect old pics that become the focus of my mixed media paintings. Painting was my main income and focus in the beginning years until I realized that I also loved sculpture. I began producing very large sculptures in stone, wood and clay. Now I work on a smaller scale and experiment with many mediums and enjoy combining different ones together. Sculpture and art dolls allow me to use all the different skills, design, sewing, painting and sculpting, I have learned through the years.
I love putting a smile on someones face so I hope you continue to visit my little world and put a bit of humor or whimsy in your day!

Growing up in the Appalachian hills of Southern Ohio, delighting in drawing and painting at an early age, Apple received artistic support from creative and loving parents. Awarded a scholarship to the Columbus College of Art & Design in 1964 was the first step of a life-loving journey into the creation of art.
Always seeking new ideas and experiences led Apple to France, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Mexico, Canada and the U.S.A. southwest. Over the past 40 years her work has gained international recognition being exhibited in Mexico, Canada and the U.S. A. while finding it's way into many prominent collections around the world.
Those experiences and other life changes have influenced and altered her work many times throughout her forty plus year career.
The technical and personal aspects of her work have merged to produce touching and whimsical images that stir the imagination and inspire the viewer to notice the little everyday moments of our life.
