TOUCHING HEARTS

It’s so much fun to decorate with art that touches our hearts. It can be an original painting or a colorful art print. What we surround ourselves with matters. Art affects us.

I’m happy our paths have crossed. Sharing the love of art is a wonderful gift. I enjoy keeping in touch with people who connect with my art. If you’re not already on the email list, you can join here.

 

 

 

 

 

A little about me…

I grew up in two beautiful communities in California- Big Bear Lake and Rancho Bernardo. After receiving my BA degree in Psychology and moving to Oregon, I began my personal journey as an artist.

My floral drawings were featured on greeting cards, and soon after I found myself embarking on a pursuit to research and illustrate every American state flower. My research culminated in the America’s Favorite Flowers Collection. My California Poppy print became part of the decor at Knott’s Berry Farm Resort Hotel in Buena Park, CA. A few years later I published “State Flowers of America - A Commemorative Coloring Book”, an educational coloring book featuring my entire America’s Favorite Flowers Collection. My work was almost exclusively drawing and painting flowers until the day I discovered a new love, portraiture. For years I’ve had the privilege to paint and draw portraits of people and pets.

Today my focus is creating teddy bear characters. My collection of oil paintings and fine art prints of the Bearie Blvd. Bears ® is a fun, imaginary, and whimsical expression of my love of teddy bears.
