December 13, 2010 The First official Snow Day of the season. This was a welcome relief after yesterdays weather. The sun was shining and my backyard was a "Winter Wonderland". No school today! I have the whole day to work the things I love to do. Camera in hand, out to the yard. It's so peaceful after a snow, and then the sun comes out and all the activity begins. Even Squirrelo comes out to see whats going on. This was absolutely the most perfect day off!
I was born and raised in southern Michigan. I'm blessed with three children, two boys and a girl that range in age from 22-30. I've been married to a wonderful man for the last 24 years. He's been very supportive of my art and has always encourged my artistic pursuits. Even though I have a fine arts degree I still consider myself largely a self taught mixed media artist. Inspiration for my art comes from many different places. Old family photos, my children, pets, and especially our garden, it's a passion that both Thom and I share.
