I was born and raised in West Virginia, and attended Marshall University (be sure to see the movie "WE ARE MARSHALL!") as a fine art major. After college I wound up in Van Zandt County, Texas as a young mother and homemaker. With the birth of my third child, a personal decision was made regarding the serious pursuit of art, teaching, and a career. Raised in a transitional era regarding women working vs. stay-at-home moms, I was able to bridge the gap by achieving both with balance. I had given private painting lessons to students as far back as 1968, and by the time my husband David and I relocated to our present home - a converted restaurant / bait-and-tackle shop - I was conducting lessons on a regular basis without ever having to leave my children in daycare.
The effort paid off ... With all my children now raised, married and settled down, I have been able to branch out and have added a custom frame shop to my studio - which are both located at my home here in Wills Point!
Then My Life Took an Unexpected Turn
My husband and I began RVing with a small travel trailer in 1998. Like most Rvers, we eventually traded up to a larger fifth wheel which had a good bit of precious wall space. So in 2003 I did a small oil painting for the LR area that featured a tiny pink and white vintage travel trailer pulled by a woodie station wagon. At the time I had only begun selling things on eBay and decided to try a print of this painting, just to see if there was any interest in my artwork. I was amazed by the reaction! Rvers and trailer buffs from all over started e-mailing to see if I had "anything else" like that. Apparently there was nothing out there even remotely like my painting ... Well, that was music to my ears! So I began working on a series of paintings of little "canned hams" and posting them on eBay and my web site (VintageTravelTrailerArt.com.) Since then my career has taken off and exceeded all expectations.
I am a self taught artist working in acrylics. I fell in love with painting while taking a painting session last fall at a local gallery. I find painting to be relaxing and fun and I lose track of time! I have a small studio outside my home in a lovely grove of live oak trees. I call this my "Girl Cave". I hope you will find my art pleasing to view and hopefully you will find a piece or two to take home with you.
Constructive basis is the mythological story, a fragment or a reference to a certain mythological hero, passage or detail, but considered in the problems of the modern social environment, resulting in a new mythological experience, a new reflection, the result of a new social environment, where a person lives, seeking and developing. Or the environment in which obliged to live, according to the circumstances are obviously controlled social power, but he often monitors and control them…the circumstances.
Psychosocial myth of modern man, art which has claim does not give the answer and ask precise question to the problems of modern life.
