I am a self taught Decorative Painter and Certified OSCI. I have been painting for about 33 years, although only seriously painting for about 21 years, and I have only been designing for about 6 years. I started designing because I found I was always sketching and taking pictures of nature and I felt it was the right time to take the next step, designing.
I live in Missouri with my wonderful husband of 36 years. Together we have 3 children, and 11 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. My husband and I both enjoy riding our motorcycles which gives us a sense of freedom. We also love to do home improvement projects and traveling. My husband Arthur is my biggest supporter and fan! I am blessed!
“It is so exciting to be able to do what I love! I have met some of the most amazing and talented people through this process, all of whom teach me something new every day! And many are now life-long friends! I am very lucky to have a great support group of painters close by.”
I love to inspire new artists and get as many people involved in decorative painting by having many of my videos free to watch and learn from on my YouTube channel. I feel sometimes we shouldn’t need to pay to get a little bit of knowledge. I know when I started painting I could have never afforded to take classes or go to seminars and that is why I offer them for free.
I hope you’ll take the step into Decorative Painting and find how relaxing the journey is!
