Thank you everyone for your kind comments and THANK YOU to all of my watchers. This place keeps me sane and keeps me going (artistically speaking). Your support is immensely appreciated! :hug:

My Webpage


Just two weeks to go until the big push. She could arrive any day now. Her room is complete... the house is 99% baby and guest ready and my hospital bag is packed. Bring on the horror of labor and delivery!

Can't wait to be able to diet my happy butt into a much smaller size after she comes... I've never been as uncomfortable in my whole life as I have been in the last 5 weeks. Since becoming pregnant I have put on less than 20lbs... Granted I was already huge to start but a good chunk of the gain is baby and fluid... the majority of the discomfort is in my pelvis... another one of those delightful little things no one tells you about pregnancy until it hits you. If any woman was actually aware of what she was in for before her first pregnancy the species might be in trouble...

I've stopped working so this is me home until further notice. It feels so bizarre and horrible and unproductive being out of work so I will have to keep myself busy other ways or I will climb the walls and that probably isn't healthy.

The 3 month subscription that I purchased will be running out soon. I don't expect to be able to use it much with a newborn anyway but I have really enjoyed the expanded browsing feature even if I have not been uploading much and I'm sure I'll renew it at some point in the future. :)

Take care All

This is usually the space where artists list their formal training, credentials and other impressive artistic involvements however, I’m afraid that I haven’t got any fancy qualifications or extraordinary achievements to note.
I draw, paint and otherwise make things with my hands because I enjoy doing it. I’m motivated by the challenge, the feedback that I receive and the sense of genuine accomplishment that comes from seeing a project through from conception to completion.
I’m not ashamed to admit that when someone purchases as much as a sticker sheet or a magnet from my Zazzle stores, it really makes my day. The fact that someone likes the product that I designed enough to purchase it with their hard earned cash provides a great deal of the incentive for me to continue uploading and updating.
I love the fact that thousands of people from all over the world have my work in their homes and on their clothes. I’ve unintentionally and intentionally designed tattoos that are permanently inked on the bodies of absolute strangers. I’ve been commissioned to create very special, unique gifts from random people who have stumbled upon me via google searches and my work has been used on a popular webseries.
So having said all this, I guess that despite the fact I have not pursued art as a career path I have still had some success in my own way.
I enjoy doing anything creative, if this could be my full time job it would be amazing but, unfortunately I’m not quite there yet.
Someday in the distant future perhaps. So until that time comes to pass I will keep doing what I’ve been doing for years, making messes, seeking new challenges, experimenting with color, texture and a whole lot of paint. I’ll continue doing what I love (while working full time on the side) and I’ll see where it takes me.
