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!:)

Just a Sneak Peek

Hi Yall!
I just can't stand it, so had to post a bit of what I am about to write about for Indiesmiles after I send in an article about an amazing artist that lives in NYC. That will be the next post so yall can read her article and yall art and also cat lovers will love her work so much!!!
Well, I presently live in an apartment and my jeep serves as my garage! :) I had a lot of my art work in my car......So, I ventured out one day to Cypress, Texas to interview one of my favorite artists. Wow, she is amazing and rents a studio out there in this place called "The Iron Butterfly". It's a purple house to begin with with a large land of space filled with studios, and a large studio where they teach art classes. I got very lost trying to find the place because the road I was looking for was down and there were tons of construction going on. I was driving around this beautiful area seeing gigantor homes and ranches with tons of horses. OMG!!! It was beautiful, but I kinda felt like Dorothy in "The Wizard of Oz", trying to find Oz. I finally found the place and it was if I had walked into "Alice in Wonderland's" world. I sold the majority of my left over inventory to Debra, the really cool gal, that owned the place that also had a shop full of whimsical art items. They are having a Grand Opening on May the 1st. I will go into more detail when I write my article on Deb, the artist, who I adore. You will also see her awesome work in my article as well. Just a sneak look at the half of the iron gate with half of a purple butterfly, that shows the only part of the purple house. So stay in tune!!!
