I'm kind of a late bloomer. I didn't discover painting until I was 33! But I was hooked. Inspired and driven, I'd get up early each day to paint for a few hours before the start of my workday. This demanding schedule was worth the effort. By 1999, I was able to leave my day job, and began to do my art as a full-time business. And thus began the amazing ride...
At 44 I began production of the television series, Give Your Walls Some Soul. The inspirational how-to painting show grew from an audience of one station, to over 50 stations across the country. It was seen in over 10 million households, winning numerous awards.
At 46, I published my children's book Monkey Made of Sockies. From that book came a line of licensed merchandise, a coloring book, and the popular Monkey Made of Sockies golf club headcover that was carried on tour by several LPGA pros.
Today I'm an award-winning artist, television producer/host, author and songwriter. My artwork is licensed and sold globally.
I believe we are all painterly, and I’m here to help you unleash the painterly in you!
