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!:)

A Ray of Sunshine Joy

That is the title of my new article on Indiesmiles! It's about a local Houstonian that is a watercolorist and has had to overcome some obstacles in her life. I adore her work and own a few of her pieces. Her main subject are cats and she paints other people pets with just a photograph! But she also does other subjects as well. I'm in love with her dachshund that you will see in the slide show. This article is bound to inspire you. Please visit :http://www.indiesmiles.com/a-ray-of-sunshine-joy/
and comments are also welcome!

Also, there is another Peanut Jones in Houston, Tx. Yes....he was spotted at a jewelry show and this particular Peanut sells beads, has his very own shop, and teaches bead making! My friend spotted him at this jewelry store and he had a tip jar with the name Peanut Jones on it!!! He raised $60.00 for the charity they were sponsoring.I wrote to his mom and she wrote me back along with Peanut adding his signature. I just had to tell her that I used to have a Peanut Jones as well. If yall would like to check out his store, it's at: http://www.tinydogseedbeads.com/
