About Me

Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

6" x 9" Mixed Media Drawing on Antique Dictionary

Our family loves theater.  My husband is our high school speech, debate, theater teacher and we both are active in directing and performing at school, at church and at our local community theater.  All three of our daughters are avid performers and now our grandchildren are getting into the act.  Our youngest daughter teaches theater.

While I was working on this during class one day, one of my students commented that the traditional theater masks are now referred to as "Laugh Now, Cry Later."  I've noticed the masks are popular as tattoos with that saying wrapped around them.  Funny how symbols can change meaning from generation to generation or culture to culture.
