My Creation's Journey began at an early age. My mother recently gifted me the Baby Book she made about me in my childhood. Along with footprints and a lock of baby hair are pictures I drew at the tender ages of 3 through 7. I was always encouraged to draw. When I couldn't think of anything to draw, Mom would say, "Draw a hippopotamus in a tutu!" I'm sure she eventually got a whole herd of dancing hippos!
Over the years my passion for drawing and painting grew and eventually led to a master's degree in fine art from Marywood University. I used my acquired skills to teach art at the college level and to create illustration for advertising and children's book. I have illustrated over 25 children's books, many of which have earned publishing awards.
All the while I also spent as much time as possible making art for me. My journey led to painting with watercolor. I have had the honor of receiving many ribbons and awards for my paintings including Best in Show 2019 from the Chesapeake Bay Watercolorists. My most recent award is a painting included in Artists Magazine - The Best of Watercolor - Splash Art 22 Competition 2021.
Now, I invite you to share my Creation's Journey by viewing my watercolor art and my best children's art. I would be thrilled for you to take something home for yourself or a child in your world.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My favorite subjects are nature and animals. When the subjects of my paintings are humans, they are very often in a natural setting with curious animals somewhere in the picture.
I have explored working in many mediums - including pen & ink, pastels, acrylic and my favorite ... watercolor. I love using a lot of color and loose layering.
My children's books have been the most satisfying accomplishments. They have not only thrilled children the world over, but have garnered many awards. My watercolor painting has taken me in another satisfying and rewarding direction.
