Welcome Friends…It is here that I share about art, faith, and family.  I am an acrylic, gouache and oil painter, published author and a life long photographer with seemingly endless creative thoughts and ideas.

It is in a small agricultural town in Northern California that you will find me writing, painting, and photographing. My husband and I have a very precious marriage, three dear children, a wonderful son-in-law, and three darling grandchildren.

From my home studio, I am able to look out at one of our rose gardens, where I am able to see my favorite soft pink rose bush in bloom. It is here that I have spent hours painting…knowing that I am so blessed to be able to do so.

While I paint, I am able to try and express the beauty that I see all around me from the creations that God made! Our garden has no less than 20 rose bushes that produce practically year round! As well, our garden displays numerous other growing flowers throughout the seasons. Lilacs, dahlias, hydrangeas, begonias, peonies, daisies, asters, sweet peas, zinnias, lavender, plus so many more!

My husband is an amazing gardener and keeps our yard beautiful…which keeps me “oh so happy!” There is hardly a day that I go outside and cannot find a flower to paint. I live in a farming community, and there is a very special flower farm just a few miles up the road that always has something in bloom if my garden does not!

That’s a bit about me. Thank you for poking around my little store. I hope you find something here that makes you smile and brings you joy!

Thank you so much for supporting my small heart-happy business and for journeying along with me while I share as authentically as possible my love for creativity, my love for family, and my love for Jesus.

With joy,


“Painting petals…seeking Light”

Jeremiah 31:35
The Lord makes the sun shine in the day and the moon and stars to shine at night. He stirs up the sea so that its waves crash on the shore. The Lord All-Powerful is his name.
