welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog
 Hello and thank you for visiting my blog. I am an artist and a mother of two beautiful children. In this blog, I will share with you some of the history, and stories behind my paintings. I have recently started a series of paintings using beer bottles as the subject. I am a beer connoisseur, and an artist so I felt, that would be fitting. When I give the history of those pieces, I will also give you a brief history of the beer, and why I chose to paint it the way I did. I hope you enjoy and look forward to learning a little of my art history.
 When I was a child, I had no idea that art was anything special. There are so many artists in my family; I thought it was just something that you learned how to do. In my mind, it was no different from walking, talking, reading, or writing. I have wanted to be an artist for as long as I can remember. When I was a child my uncle told me that I would not make any money until after I was dead, I am 34 years old and still trying to prove him wrong! I would like to show my children that if you work hard and follow your dreams, you could make it doing what you love.
