About Me

My photo
Creating Art is my passion! I carry a sketch pad with me and whenever I am still I am drawing. I guess art is my addiction. Some of my paintings began as sketches on table napkins, envelopes, even graduation programs and then evolved into paintings, greeting cards and program cover designs. I was always in trouble as a child for leaving my sketches innapropriately on tables, desks, book shelves and sidewalks. My Art has graced the covers of nonprofit magazines, program covers for special events and greeting cards. I am now illustrating a childrens picture book. Take a look at my prints and contact me if my art style would enhance your next program cover, personalized greeting card or children's book idea.

Creating Art has been a little slow recently. I am always sketching but haven't created anything worthy of framing or exhibiting. I have been enjoying some sketch pad apps available for my notepad. It is fun to learn to create with new media. For the creative person, something artistic can be made from just about anything. I guess our decendents' first permanent canvas was a cave wall. So here are some of the art I haved been playing with on sketch apps.
I sketched this one in church using "Drawing Pad" app for kids on my Kindle Fire.
I sketched this on SMemo on my Samsung GalaxyIII phone.
The content was from a traumatic incident in my life. During the most painful
time I saw Jesus in bright sunshine, comforting and helping me survive. Just sketching
this scene was healing.

                                                                                                                                                                   This also was created on the SMemo app on my Samsung GalaxyIII
   The "Harvest" sketch below I also made on the "Drawing Pad" app on the Kindle Fire.
And just for fun during a boring meeting I "clay doodled" this little guy and perched him on my notebook...just for fun. It is always handy to keep some Sculpy handy.  

So although none of these fun creations are masterpieces, it was fun exploring the endless media options available. And no messy paints are needed when the creative juices flow in the middle of a church service.

  1. wow, that's so cool, I had gotten a pen to hook to the computer when I was in Rome, NY then moved to texas and even the last two years in SC I still haven't gotten things out to begin work again. You are a wonderful artist and love seeing new work. Big hugs from an old fan
