The Creator created me to create for you...

Since the time that I was a little girl -more like a little tomboy- I have lived in a world of my own imagination. An azure sky spattered with the changing leaves that ride the wind current; unicorns seen only by their snowy white coats that glitter in the crisp air after a rainfall; a great horned owl nestled in the rich earthy bark of a pine, its furrows covered in soft, thick moss; creatures of the forest, their eyes wide and sparkling, watching as I survey their landscape and draw fantastic visions from their seeming magic; all of these are glimpses in the painted hollow. A place to escape the concrete and exhaust and take part in the beauty of God’s creation.

There is also a space reserved for my silliness here. Roly-poly kittens stuffed into Sunday suits; bumbling baby circus bears who get into scrapes time and again; pantomime horses getting into squabbles with strange passersby. It can’t all be epic and serious all the time.

My mom taught me to draw a horse when I could barely form sentences. Art became an escape from our turbulent life. I recently realized how much my God-given talents were being squandered working retail 50 hours a week and so I cut back at work, started going to school again (for nutrition science) and went full throttle into my own business. Without the help of my husband, Kevin, my super-supportive mom, my weirdo cats, or all the non sequitur bologna in my brain, I couldn't do it.

No matter what I do, this is a sacred gift to me that I want to use for good. I try to reuse and recycle materials to make art pieces, whether they are paintings or jewellery, stationary, or accessories. I always give part of my proceeds to support missionaries and Harvest Ministries.

So much love goes into the work I do and I really hope you enjoy seeing what I do as much as I enjoy doing it!
