Hello there!

I’m not really sure what to say about myself. I can talk for hours about my Coonhound, Tyson, or my husband, or practically any other topic – but when it comes to me, I draw a blank. In a nutshell, I am a country girl that loves nature and the spicy scent of pine needles and fresh air. I do art things on the side because if I don’t, I get cranky. Art is my outlet.

Since I discovered quilling in 2014, I’ve managed to create hundreds of beautiful pieces. Every single work of art was made with passion and meticulous attention to detail, whether it was a gift for my grandmother or a surprise for a stranger who had recently lost their beloved pet. Many pieces hold special meaning for me and will always be a part of my personal collection.

I’ve had years where I cranked out piece after piece, and I’ve had years where I only created for specific reasons or took on specific projects. What I’ve learned over time is that the most meaningful aspect of being a weekend warrior hobby artist is that I get to choose what I create. I pick projects that satisfy my soul and hopefully enhance the lives of the people that I make art for.

I strive to be the artist that people seek out because they want a piece of artwork that captures a feeling or emotion or memory, and not to simply mass produce generic décor. I want my art to have essence and meaning.

Does this mean that I’m no longer accepting commissions? Nope! I am definitely interested in hearing about your project ideas. There is no project too small, and, I want to say there are none too large, but… let’s be realistic, we’re talking about quilling here, LOL.
