Greetings friends, followers, admirers and passers-by. 

Its been a long road for me over the past few years with my family involved in the United States Marine Corps. Military life is by no means easy, and despite enjoying so much time devoted to being a stay-at-home Mom while my daughter blossomed into a beautiful, intelligent and thoughtful young girl, I have a heavy heart. I regret my obvious lack of art while stationed at Camp Lejeune, but at the very least I'm glad to have made strides in other personal directions and creative endeavors during our time there. 

Just recently we moved back to our home state and are living nearby family and friends once more. It's a great feeling, and I'm ready for a fresh, new start. I hope one day soon I'll be able to give back to my community here where I grew up through the joy, inspiration and therapeutic values of art. It's a personal dream of mine to own/run a studio that I can open and share with others, and encourage them to find happiness within themselves by loving what they create and striving to do more.

Last summer my laptop was severely damaged, taking down with it all my personal files, including all my images, contacts, commission database and résumé information, among countless other things like vast writing and storytelling files and all my music. It's been a severe hindrance to my work, but I've managed to progress a bit, and hope that it won't hold me back from accomplishing my goals and furthering my career. I have a smart phone and a tablet now, so that will hold me tight until I can hopefully recover my hard drive. 

in closing, nothing particularly new to share in terms of artwork, but major lifestyle and personal changes are in the works. Thanks to everyone who has stayed in touch, waited to hear back, came to view my portfolio or just decided to swing by.

All the best,

Thank you for visiting and for your interest in my artwork!

Drawing and painting has been a serious struggle for me since December 2006 when I was diagnosed with a rare form of juvenile glaucoma. The disease has left me permanently blind throughout most of my peripheral and some of my central eye sight. Although I have had surgical procedures to prevent further loss of vision, it is an everyday struggle - a battlefield when trying to create the work I live for with all the detail I love. It often takes many hours on a single drawing, but I refuse to give up.

Glaucoma has taken much of my sight, but it hasn't crushed my spirit. I'd wilt if I couldn't draw, so despite my challenges, I push myself to achieve the highest quality work that I can.

Drawing is my life, and nature is my spirit.

Thank you all, so much, for your support.
