NEW Good Nap on a Full Belly
This is my neighbors cat named Rusty. He's a pretty big boy! One day I was taking the boys for a walk and he was rolling around on the sidewalk. Of course I had to stick around to get the perfect picture of him. He was like a big rolly polly! I took the photo and as I was looking at it the first thing I thought of was, "Man the big belly is probably full of some birdies!" That's where my idea for this painting came from.
A life of creation!
Drawing has been my passion since I was a little girl but I did not do my first in color until I was 17. I actually did not start selling my work until July 2009 and from there it has become great success. I am now an Award Winning Artist winning 7 awards my first two years.
My Life My Inspiration
My art comes from my everyday life. Yes it can be crazy with four boys, two dogs, two cats and a great husband. But I enjoy every minute of it and wouldn't change it for the world. I think sometimes we forget the little things in life that make us smile. That cute snuggly dog that hogs the bed or the cat that can open the kitchen cabinet to steal his kitty treats.
I have drawn like this since the moment I could hold a pencil. I did not attend school for art and didn't create my first piece in color, other then crayon and marker, until I was 17. From there I never stop learning. Teaching myself to create beyond what I could of imagined I still continue to learn and experiment with my love of patterns and color. I knew my style was different and once I realized different was good I began creating for the world to see. Now not only do I love to tell my story through my art I enjoy hearing other peoples stories and creating a piece for them to share with others. The little moments that make us smile we can treasure forever in a painting.
