WELCOME!

Aloha and thank you for visiting my site. This is where I share many wonderful things including my artwork, printable gift tags and stationery, crafting instructions, my collections, my words and any other bits of treasures I find while out exploring the world.

As far back as I can remember, I always loved sketching and drawing and creating new characters and scenes. While I took 2 college level art classes I found myself more discourage, then encouraged by them, to create something of my own. I didn't start to paint until 2003. I started slowly, first painting faces, then animals, then toys, and one day a sock monkey. That sock monkey turned out to be my very first painting sale. It also was the beginning of a series of silly sock monkey paintings. My monkeys reflect my belief that you need laughter and hope in your lives every day.

Each art piece for me is a journey in self discovery. They reflect little bits of where I have been, where I am, where I want to be, and where I am going.

Like me, this site is a work in progress. I hope you enjoy browsing around and feel free to drop me an e-mail.
