me & my art

This is my journey; a new chapter in my life.
With degenerative health issues, life can be an interesting journey.
Health does not define me, although it does present real challenges daily.
Learning new ways to adapt is a necessity.
My moto?  Life would not be life without creating and coffee!
Art saved my soul, and me.

My love for thrift stores created my passion
for recycling old things into new purposeful creations.
Paint, paper, colors, fabric, special little finds and
getting really, really messy fuels my soul.

Some of my favorite things (besides coffee & thrift store finds) are my old tattered jeans,
flip flops, cooking, connecting with other artists and learning new techniques,
oh and Ben & Jerry's Fro Yo Cherry Garcia or B&J's Banana Split ice cream.

The best thing that ever happened in my life are my three children.
I have one daughter and two sons.
All three of my kids are extremely talented and inspire me all the time.

Lastly is my partner in Graceful Whispers Studio.
This is Buddy, a miniature poodle.
I rescued him from our local shelter in July 2015.
He was an immediate companion, best friend and constant entertainer.
Buddy is my first small dog and first poodle breed.
He never ceases to amaze me and anyone he meets.


 There is no foo-foo for this little boy.
He's pretty tough too and loads of fun to watch.
Buddy was born a true entertainer.

Now that you have met me, I would like to meet YOU!
Leave a comment and/or your blog address.
I would love to visit your blog or website, see what inspires you, what you enjoy
and what you are creating in your life.
