Announcement    Greetings! I am excited to announce my Brown Monkey floorcloth will be seen in The World of Interiors, July 2019. My passion is creating unique and meaningful artwork for your home. I create original acrylics on canvas to hang on the wall, as well as hand cut and painted latex on heavy cotton canvas as a durable rug to protect floors and tabletops. Reasonable prices to encourage everyone to enjoy fine art in their home; all sales support pain management for my teenage daughter battling Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS/RSD) and Fibromyalgia.

My product is inspired by the technique and use of painted canvas floor coverings in the 18th century. This has a reputation for lasting many years and being very durable, and can even be repainted if needed. I enjoy researching my designs from original sources from the 1700s, such as Delft tiles, Chinoiserie wallpaper, newspaper graphics and illustrations. My modern designs reflect the timeless florals and succulents that everyone loves. In a time of disposable cheap products, this one is not!

Custom orders can be placed for site specific sizes, colors, designs, sets of place mats, and table runners for weddings, parties, etc. The sale of my art does not transfer copyright or any reproduction rights, although they may be available. Please inquire about mass produced quantities of prints of original art for cards.
Cheers!

Creating art to support myself and my daughter with CRPS and Fibromyalgia

I explore every opportunity not just for my own passion, but because I am also a solo mom of a teen battling CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) and Fibromyalgia. I am hoping to increase my artwork's success so I can provide a comfortable environment, proper medical care, and opportunities for her as she manages painful symptoms.

I grew up in a family of artists and have been painting and drawing on and off my whole life. My late grandmother used to tell me when I was a kid that some of my work reminded her of her cousin's art, Wayne Thiebaud. My great grandfather Jesse LeBaron is said to have been a great cartoonist who taught his nephew, Wayne, how to draw. My mother is also an accomplished oil painter. Her historic artwork is respected and displayed at historic sites such as Mount Vernon (www.whitehistoricart.com). I am now a self employed artist who paints everything- walls, canvas, 18th century floorcloths, and anything that needs a fresh look.

I am inspired by nature- animals, flowers, everything has a color or shape that is amazing. Nature holds exquisite patterns which has influenced art throughout history and across the globe. My experience with creative jobs in t-shirt design, pottery instruction, and even cake decoration have also influenced my work. I spend a lot of time outdoors and I look for natural subjects to translate into a work of art; birds and flowers in particular. Then I combine them with a love of fabric, wallpaper, and tile patterns which cross history and borders. I have been working on my collection for some time now and am enjoying my work on new paintings and floorcloths.
