I am a wife, mother, law enforcement officer by day, mixed media artist and teacher, vintage collector, beach loving, writer, grateful, Survivor (of cancer), God and country loving gal who enjoys connecting with others by sharing life and art. While a country girl at heart (roots are from the South), I was born and raised in beautiful Southern California (‘the OC’).
In the past, I cherished being a part of a grassroots movement – the Fiskateers (Fiskars – the Orange handled Scissor Company) when I served as a lead/founding craft ambassador, party planner, product developer, manager of community, speaker, and fire starter. That’s when I met my dear and precious Brave Girl Sisters!
I enjoy sharing a bit of my story on a regular basis with Stampington’s many lovely publications by writing articles and creating. Most recently, my heart is full of gratitude to be a survivor of breast cancer (2 ½ years). I hope to encourage and educate others by what I’ve learned through this journey. I’ve enjoyed contributing artwork to the American Society of Oncology as well as sharing as a spokeswoman for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.
We all have a story to tell. I look so forward to watching yours unfold as you create on your canvas of life! I know I’ll be touched by the unique colors and brushstrokes of your journey! Warmest creative wishes!
