Here in the Pacific Northwest, summer goes by all too quickly. It's here for a short time and then gone before you can even get warm. So I cherish these Indian summer days when the sun is warm, the breezes fresh and cool, and the light so gorgeous.
Welcome to my blog! I'm an artist - it's not just what I do but how I see the world. I find inspiration everywhere...in nature, music, friends. I am very fortunate these days to being able to license my art to some wonderful companies for greeting cards, calendars, fabrics, giftware and scrapbook products and more. Thanks for visiting!
