I’m usually happy, though sometimes I’m not.
I cry a little and laugh a lot.
I love red and orange and pink and green.
I don't like any melons or people who are mean.
I dance and I sing, though maybe not well.
But I’ve bribed all my children so they’ll never tell.
If you’ve made it past that, I guess it’s only fair that I give you maybe just a bit more information about me. Ready?
I am a 30-something mother of 3, illustrator, designer, dabbler in this and that. Prior my current and varied position, I worked in several professional fields and I studied many things, but never art. At least never in an academic setting.
And yet, I always knew I wanted to be an artist, perhaps without ever really knowing it. Colour and design have always been a part of me. While others had doll houses to play make-believe, I spent my time decorating mine and moving furniture about. Back-to-school time was always terribly exciting as it meant new crayons, shiny felt-tips and blank notebooks just waiting to be filled with doodles. And there wasn’t a craft section from Highlights that wasn’t read and re-read and tried and re-tried by my little girl hands.
Today I’m thrilled to be able to create things for others. I have such a sense of joy and satisfaction knowing that, along with their packages, I’m sending along a few smiles.
