Bio:
 "I have been an artist in some way my whole life. I have always been in art programs when I was in school, and would draw from animal books for hours, and make illustrations for short stories that my sister and I would create. I started painting about 4 years ago. I started out using oil paints, then moved to acrylic due to the mess I made with the oils :) 

My favorite things to paint are skeleton family portraits, peacocks, and whimsical trees. It's my personal belief that the only way to grow and become a better artist is to paint a little everyday. Since opening my shop in August 2010, I have sold 80+ paintings, have been involved in 2 local art festivals, and have my art for sale at a local restaurant. I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I love everyday :) "

ICO - You Were There...

Today is my birthday and I'd like to share with you a 
little bit of beauty. I'm in love with this song and the 
innocence of this boy's voice. The song is from the beloved
 video game classic "ICO."An enchanting tale about a cursed little boy with horns and his courage in the face of darkness, his love for a young fairy maiden, and the ultimate sacrifice she must make to protect him This is one of the pieces that I always listen
to whenever I'm working on my art or writing my stories.
I hope you enjoy.





The island bathes in the sun's bright rays
Distant hills wear a shroud of grey
A lonely breeze whispers in the trees
Sole witness to history

Fleeting memories rise
From the shadows of my mind
Sing "nonomori" - endless corridors
Say "nonomori" - hopeless warriors
You were there
You were there

Am I forever dreaming
How to define the way I'm feeling

You were there
Countless visions they haunt me in my sleep
You were there
Though forgotten all promises we keep

Slaves to our destiny
I recall a melody
Sing "nonomori" - seasons lit with gold
Say "nonomori" - legends yet untold
You were there
You were there

Happiness follows sorrow
Only believing in tomorrow

You were there
Countless visions they haunt me in my sleep
You were there
Though forgotten all promises we keep

The island bathes in the sun's bright rays
Distant hills wear a shroud of grey
A lonely breeze whispers in the trees
Sole key to this mystery

Amethyst Necklace...

My NIRA Amethyst Necklace was treasured on ETSY!!


FYI an ETSY "TREASURY" is when people on ETSY select  items from their favorite shops and make a public list for everyone to see. Sellers cannot put their own items in treasuries, so its really marvelous when people love your work so much that they showcase it for you! 
Its great for us sellers as it boosts sales!

Do you see the shadow of a prince on the left? He's hidden in silhouette. So does the fair maiden wonder about marrying the prince or is she worried this decision will mean leaving someone else behind... and the plot thickens. (The original was called "Doubt")
