I've always been an artistic person. As a child, I would study every detail of the illustrations in children's books. I would sit for hours tracing coloring book pages. I made wonderful little messes of cut up patterns of paper for my mother to find. Now, I am a mother of two children myself, who like to leave their paper scraps throughout our home from their dinosaur cutouts to homemade superhero books.
I continue to enjoy art in many different forms. First, I am a Graphic Designer. I have been in the business for 18 years, working for companies and freelancing. I have experience in print media, website design, email marketing and more. I also teach mixed media painting in my hometown of Beckley, WV. I am often commissioned to paint murals around our city and in our schools. I simply have a strong desire to always be creating.
