"Happy, vibrant, and beautiful" are the words most often expressed by viewers of my artwork. "Thank you" is my response, but mission accomplished rings in my head. Emerson said " Earth laughs in flowers." I seek to express this exact sentiment in my artwork. I seek to celebrate God's glorious gift of the seasonly morphing natural world. I desire to capture and express this so that it can be enjoyed inside our living spaces.
I am a current Powell resident. Ohio born into a family of competitive and brainiac children. My fate was sealed when my fourth grade art teacher named me artist of the month. " it was an owl expressed in sunflower seeds and elmers glue. " i met my lifetime partner and hubby in high school. I am a graduate of Columbus College of Art and Design. For years I espressed my love of nature and creativity through professional floral design. I've been raising three fabulous kids literally painting every wall in our home, and other's too. Now I am back to expressing myself through these mixed media painting.

Please enjoy.

Size Does Matter!

The Village Artisans Gallery in Yellow Springs is hosting an
ARTIST Trading Card Show!

And Everyone is Invited!
So come on all you bloggers and readers and artists and would be artists! Here is your chance to get Original Artwork for FREE!
Of course, you have to contribute your work in order to get work. A lot of people know how this works, but let me just give you the specifics...

There are some RULES to trading Artist Cards

1. Artist trading cards are pieces of watercolor paper, cardstock, or illustration board that are 2.5"x3.5" in size.
2. An artist creates an original work of art on these tiny canvases and then trades them with other artists through groups and events.
3. Trade is the operative word. Cards should not be sold.
4. Any medium is allowed on trading cards. Some examples of mediums that other artists have used is crayon, wax reserve, collage, gel pens, concrete transfers, watercolor, colored pencil, and pencil sketchings.
5. On the back of the cards, the artist should print their name, contact information (an email address is fine), the title of the work on the artist trading card, and a number if it is part of a series.

ATCs can either be bought at Art Stores pre-made or can be made from larger sheets of paper cut down to size.

So, if you are interested consider this your official invitation and follow the specifics above and below...

These are the Village Artisans Guidelines

Ten Cards only, sent to Village Artisans, along with a SASE
Work must be received by Saturday, June 27th
