At what point in your life did you realize you were an artist?

I’ve always been interested in art, but working, raising a family, I never had the time until I retired, and then I dove in.

Why did you choose the folk art genre?

I was drawn to folk art because it’s whimsical, kind of like me.

What mediums do you use or most enjoy?

I started with oils, then switched to acrylics because it dried faster. I use ink paints, anything else that works.


Does the work come framed?

Most of my art comes framed, some look better without a frame.

Can paintings be shipped?

Shipping is available at the expense of the buyer and includes very careful packing.  Average cost for packing and shipping averages $45.  

Do you do commissioned work?

I’ve done many custom commissioned pieces and have had terrific feedback.   


Where do you find inspiration?

Everywhere… sunsets, birds, flowers, and I take pictures of everything I see.
