About

"...names are poetry in the raw" W.H. Auden

I am married to my biggest fan, my college sweetheart. We met in 1976 while attending Wayland Baptist Univeristy, Plainview, Texas. We have been blessed with four beautiful and gifted children with names beginning with "CH". Thus: "fourch". Chance, Charity, Cherish and Choyce. My husband has worked very hard over the years to allow me to stay home and care for our children over the span of 15 years. I have taught school for 14 years. One of my greatest honors while teaching was to be named "Teacher of the Year".

I was born in North Carolina yet adopted at the age of 3 and raised in the great state of TeXaS.My husband and I own a home on Route 66 in OKLAhoma, USA.

A dear friend of our family (an artist as well) gave my son a beautiful and creative watercolor painting of his name as a gift when he was born. I was inspired to try this myself. I found watercolors were easy to get out and put away. When our son was a toddler and I was a struggling stay at home mom, I would spread large rolls of newsprint on a glass top table and hand him a paint brush while I painted at my desk. I proceeded to develop my own creative ideas and launched a small business you now see on Etsy.com. You can see many of the works I have shared with others in this shop over the years. The same son who painted beside me as a toddler, is now a professional artist as well! He graduated with his Masters in Fine Art from WTAMU in May 2011. Feel free to explore his web-site: www.chancehays.com

I have also illustrated three children's books.

"Micki’s 18 Hats" by M.B. Johnson, "Dragonfly" by Bradley Chance Hays and "Mr. Fidget’s Big Day" by M. B. Robbins
