I count myself extremely blessed to be a creative person. I get into a blissful state when I am creating. Even better is when my creativity can be used to help or bless someone. My husband and I work with a young adult group in our church. We decided to build gingerbread houses and then auction them to raise money for a group of kids that are going on a mission trip to Mexico on the Christmas break. The auction was held this morning and raised $215.00
The house that I helped build is the top picture. I have to brag. That house sold for $100.00 How cool is that!
Everyone had a lot of fun the evening we spent building the houses. I think it was a win win situation for all involved.
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
