Peonies may be my very favorite painting subject, at least right now while it’s peony season. The wonderful amazing colors of spring time and the promise of summer. Nothing makes me happier! If you want to be the first to know of new peony paintings follow me on instagram!

Welcome! Painting and art have been a life-long love for me. I am super busy with an advertising and design agency in Lancaster, PA, TCG Advertising & Design, and I have three wonderful children, an energetic husband, and two crazy cats. So I fit in my painting time in the wee hours of the morning and it makes me infinitely happy. Life is full. But I am squeezing in some time to paint. Which gives me peace in the chaos. I hope you enjoy my art!

brighter day

Are there mornings where you wish all you had to do all day was going to a coffee shop, hang out and watch people come and go, daydream, then leisurely go home and do whatever your heart desired? Maybe paint for a while, fold some laundry, maybe sit on the porch and have an iced tea? Sounds heavenly. But maybe, just maybe if I had days like that I would actually accomplish less. I’m sure I would, but maybe, just maybe it wouldn’t matter. Well, that’s certainly not in the cards for me today. Just a starry-eyed dream.
This original 8″x8″ oil painting was donated to the Brighter Day Foundation to auction at a fundraising event.

with gratitude

How lucky am I to be able to do something that I love every day! Thank you to all of my wonderful friends and collectors for supporting my art. It means the world to me.

These adorable little (5″ square) framed watercolor bee paintings are available in my Etsy store. I created some of them for my shop at Building Character in downtown Lancaster and had so much fun making them that I thought I’d make more to put on Etsy. They make super cute valentine gifts. My niece ordered a set of five to hang in her twin’s bedroom as inspiration for them to see every day. Each and every one is handmade and one-of-a-kind with its own quirky and random personality. Bee happy!

I made these adorable little watercolors to sell at Building Character in downtown Lancaster, Pa. They are all one-of-a-kind, handmade watercolors with hand lettering. I think I will make a few to sell in my Etsy shop, too. They are inspired by my friend Lori, from Beebees All Naturals, who is a beekeeper extraordinaire and sells her honey right next to my artwork. Bee happy!

I am happy to have an illustration included in the Uppercase (my favorite magazine #uppercaselove) calendar. It’s a special insert to the magazine where anyone could submit art for one of the square in the calendar (mine’s on April 22). It’s an adorable calendar full of inspiration and cute illustrations to color. Happy me!
