About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

I Found Another Fun Giveaway!

I am so delighted to go on people's blogs and find new artists to follow, as yall know I love to collect art & handmade pieces from living Artisans. Those that I admire of course! There is nothing better than handmade! I also love to share my artwork to people that like my art, but that's a different story. I have to also try to sell as well, but the best feeling is that something I handmade, always made from my heart, makes people that receive a piece happy! Every piece I make is like my child! My other passion is promoting other artists!
Well...I just found another giveaway on a site. She makes darling art and is a photographer as well, as far as I can see. I need to get to know her better, so I just now started following her!
