I was blessed with an emotional comment at an art show . The viewer commented that she could lay back put her feet up sipping a glass of wine and just get lost in my painting. I was touched and grateful by her words because that is what I want my viewers to feel, getting lost in one of my painting. Taking them to a place they can let everything go. I hope you can find that painting at my shop.

About

Thank you for visiting my shop, and I hope you find a painting that brings you joy and some serenity.

I see color first. It will turn my head, astound me, and cause me to stop and record it's beauty. Color excites me and inspires me to paint. God's creation of nature and it's perfect beauty of color, sights, and sounds drives me to paint. I feel nature is the perfect artist canvas and why not be inspired by it's unlimited paintings.

The Lord is great. In a sea of phenomenal artists, the set designer of Hawaii Five-O found me and bought two paintings. My paintings have been featured on three episodes. https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1019017022? and https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1018967285?.

I am a self-educated artist and instead of crayons I once used, the paintbrush. palette knife, or nature's tools are my tools to create movement, color, and the textures of nature. Growing up, I participated in all my school art classes and took three years of art classes at college, and I have devoted countless hours of reading and practicing, practicing, and practicing.

It was friends and family that encouraged me to sell my art. My first show wasn't a success and I considered giving up, but a fellow seller liked my art and bought some paintings. I told her my plight, but she inspired me to keep painting and selling. She told me my art took her away to another place and that it reminded her of all the fun trips she treasured.

I now enjoy painting abstract landscapes and seascapes. My greatest inspiration are the sights and sounds of the ocean. I am soothed by the crash of the waves, awestruck by the great vastness and beauty, and the treasures hidden on the sand and in the water. I paint the ocean to express the love and the mesmerizing beauty the ocean evokes in me. Depending on my message, I’ll either choose watercolor for its spontaneity and transparent qualities or heavy bodied acrylics for its thickness to create nature's color, texture and varied brushstrokes.

The name of my shop is a nickname from my husband, and it stuck. I want my art to sooth viewers and take them back to another place and remember that life is good.

    I love color! Color is a source of joy and a beacon of light for me, and the emotion is evokes in me. Its color that inspires me to pick up a paint brush, and I try to convey that emotional pull color has on me with each painting.
