I am an artist currently working out of Longview, TX where I live with my husband, Josh, my son Frazier, and my dog, Gatsby. I would call my style traditional pop art or contemporary folk art. Because I received very little formal training as an artist I definitely consider it to be outsider art. It's unpolished and fun. I paint because it makes me happy and what results, I think, is inherently cheeerful. I utilize bright colors, bold shapes and occasionally glitter, glass, glazes and clay to create something simple, but unique and expressive. My desire is to share what I create and it is my hope that my art and products are enjoyed. I want them simply to be items that bring to others the happiness they've provided me and I hope wherever they end up they are a special splash of color and as such, that they are very often smiled upon.
