The Short & The Sweet

Mostly a self-taught painter, but a natural born creative. 

Born and raised Texan.  But Colorado is where I was always meant to be.

Over educated for what I want to do with my life. Science and fine arts degrees. Grateful for the schooling though.

Left-brain, right-brain highly functioning individual.

Animals are the best. Especially dogs. And horses. And elephants. 

Doing the best I can every day to live a good life. 

Mother to one amazing human. My best creation to date.

Grateful Every Day. Find Your Peace. Live Life Wonderful!
