A couple of years ago, my daughter, Kellyn moved from Michigan across the country to California. It was a pretty big move from our small town. Needless to say we don't get to see her but maybe once a year. This year for Christmas my husband and I decided to fly her home for the holidays. So she can catch up with family and friends. Can't wait to see you, Kellyn!!!! Merry Christmas!!!!!
I created this two page journal entry using a photo of Kellyn from one of her profile pictures on face book. I wanted to do something as colorful and free spirited as she is. I think my mission was accomplished.
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.
