Bluebirds on my canvas
Today, it seems that I love to layer and collage the many skills I have learned over the years, and to create a scrapbook of details. The bluebirds sketches were uploaded to my computer and used to create this canvas for my sister Lynne.
I just love the new mainstream artwork filled with sheet music, vintage artwork and sometimes mixed together to create cards, ATC cards and treasures of all kinds. I especially love to work with canvas, so combining my love of painting, scrapbooking, collage, and Vintage design is a natural. I have always loved sheet music and to add this to the creation seems a perfect enhancement.

- I was raised in Long Island, New York and in my early twenties, moved to Manhattan and worked there for many years in the computer field. I have been an artist as long as I can remember. I started painting in 1983 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. I found lots of inspiration when we moved to Hong Kong for my husband's work. Five years later, we moved to Toronto. We returned to New England in 2002 and I have enjoyed all the creative and inspiring resources that surround me. The Lord has blessed my life with a wonderful family and many gifts.
