Hi, and thanks for stopping in! The wonderfully fun and unusual folk art creations
on this site were designed in my imaginative artist’s mind! And I am thrilled to be
nationally recognized for my unique blend of illustrations and papier mache sculptures.
Art has always been a passion in my life. Luckily, my creativity was nurtured at an
early age by my influential mother who recognized my talents and encouraged me
to pursue the arts. As a high school senior, I was awarded a full scholarship to the
Art Institute of Colorado where I studied visual communications. Upon completion,
I began a career that would extend six years at Denver's leading NBC news affiliate.
First, as an electronic artist, and then as an art director, I created graphics and
animations for the news and won an Emmy award for my skills! In spring 2003, I
left behind that position to pursue my heart's desires. And with perseverance, I began
drawing, painting and sculpting with the intent that a new career would blossom from
my designs . . .
Now, I enjoy creating vintage style folk art with an emphasis on Halloween and other
holiday themes from my home which I share with my talented husband, JP and our
black cat Jack! I truly feel blessed to have the opportunity to create and spread both
smiles and joy through my creations!
