In 1994, my husband and I started a wholesale business selling my framed watercolors to retailers across the nation. I became overwhelmed by the "business" side of our company and found little time to paint. In 1997 that all changed when I started licensing my work. Licensing allowed me to get back to the creative side of my business.
Over the past 13 years I've been painting watercolors and fulfilling the needs of my licensees. However, the desire to paint with acrylics in a more layered, textured style has always been in my heart.
In 2010, I gradually added Early American style and mix media acrylics to my portfolio. Many of these acrylic paintings feature scripture or inspirational quotes from a past sage. I feel I am exactly where I should be... sharing my faith and the gift HE gave me with the world.
My passion is to create! I love painting using acrylic paints and many times I paint over collage papers. I have been licensing my art since 1996 and through the years have created a brand with my country-whimsical watercolors, however, as an artist I am always looking for new creative outlets which I am hoping Arsty Home will provide.
