It happened on a Sunday… that’s when I really learned to block out the world and travel to far away places. See my Dad collects books and his favorite authors were always available to share. With a household of four kids and my Mom craving quiet – Sunday afternoons were spent reading. I grew up on Tarzan and Modesty Blaise as well as his endless supply of comics! Of course Spider-Man and X-men but my absolute favorite was the Elf Quest Series. What Wendi Pini creates with her elves and wolves is fantastic! Which brings me to my deep love of art. My mom was always dragging me along when visiting friends. I was bored ( and probably annoying her) when my mom gave me a pad of paper and pencil to keep me busy. Hours later I had my first sketch of an old fisherman and the seed of creativity had been planted. Fast forward to 2020 and I am still a grateful daughter, loving wife, good mom to five kids ( four are now adults) and fun Nana to six littles. We live in Saint Louis, Missouri with our youngest son and two dogs. Painting has been my passion since I was 17 but I am truly enjoying learning to tell stories through my drawings. I try to create everyday whether digital or traditional mediums and believe in giving back.
