Since I was old enough to hold a crayon I spent my time drawing. With a fabulous art education I learned the Elements of Art and Design and received my Bachelor of Arts degree from Northern Illinois University.
However, it wasn't until I had a serendipitous opportunity at Oprah's Studios during a book discussion of The Alchemist that I first officially declared myself an artist. I've been on a new trajectory towards this, my dream career since that day.
For me, using pens to draw images and words is a form of meditation and connection. My work began when I created a simple little note card with the word "thankful" drawn in the center. I kept the card propped at the corner of my desk and occasionally it caught my eye. The card reminded me to take a breath and find gratitude. Surprisingly that one little word provided me relief when life was handing me a "moment." I know for sure, our words create our world.
When I draw the world disappears and time evaporates. Stories unfold within each piece as inspiring words find their way into my drawings. I believe the viewer connects with my drawings in the moment. In other words, what they need is what they see.
Connection is the elixir I crave most. If you connect with my drawings, my work is done.
