I have painted, drawn, cut paper, and sculpted art ever since I can remember. My signature style is whimsical, bold colored pattern, always involving a variation of dots and stripes. I love, love, love polka dots. I am probably the only mother ever that was delighted when my kids had chicken pox….what’s not to love about polka dotted faced kids? My patterns are classic with an updated twist of color. I have been licensing my art for the past 7 years with several gift manufacturers.
I also create and sell originals that are sold through a handful of juried art fairs throughout the country. My training, other than being given big boxes of art supplies as a child every Christmas, includes a B.A. in Art from DePauw University and an M.Ed. in Art Education from Penn State University. My home based studio is in St. Louis, where I live with my husband, two children, and two big goofy dogs.
