Flower Fairy, original acrylic paintingEver since I was a child, I have always been passionate about gardening, spending time outside, and creating artwork. Now that I have two children of my own I enjoy sharing these experiences with them. There is something magical about planting a seed, or creating a painting, or just taking a walk in the woods.

I live in the midwest with my husband and my two daughters, ages 5 and 7 months. We also share our home with a yellow lab, a wirehaired dachsund, and elderly cat and a betta fish.

We have an ordinary subdivision lot, but every year we rent the sod cutter and take up a little more grass. We’re very much into permaculture around here.

I would also love to have chickens, but my husband won’t let me.
