I love's in my genes!

I'm a former Middle School Reading and Art Teacher, Basketball Coach's wife, mother of a son, daughter and son-in-law, grandmother, and a lover of the sunshine and beach.

I love acrylic paints, and mixed media. Recently, through traveling, I discovered the enjoyment I got from sketching and watercoloring in my journal. Now I can extend that experience through sketchbook watercolors to share with you.

Painting started later for me in life....mid 40's. I took an online creative business class, learned to make giclee prints, discovered Etsy, and started my shop!

We live in Houston, Texas. I paint out of my home studio and in my journal when traveling.

I have always loved some form of art. Both my grandmothers were oil and china painters, my mother is a decorator, painter and china painter, my sister is a painter and potter. It's in my genes!
