I was born in California, and now live in New Zealand, and enjoy beautiful scenery and lovely changeable weather! I enjoy music, art, photography, cooking, astronomy, exploring new lands/places, taking walks along the beach at sunset, and almost anything else! I'm married with a son, and I have great compassion for all living things!
Let me tell you what is my saving grace, and my happy place...when I want to daydream and where I want to create...my art!
I'm a self taught artist and my long arduous journey, started off with crayons and a colouring book at a very young age. I just loved all the different colours and what I could make black and white outlined "things" look like all coloured in. I then started drawing... drawing was really and will always be my first love of art, and the first things I remember sketching were challenging enough for a five year old, but I tried and tried, and with determination and perseverance I got it to look half decent! When I got bored with sketching, because it had no colour, I moved on to Acrylics and then I also tried water-colour and oils...but since 2010, when I happened to be at home recovering from a work injury and had a set of pastel pencils and coloured pencils...I was forever hooked...and I learned/still learning new wonderful techniques and tips to lead me through my journey into my future of art...in a sense, upping my game!!
SO...DON'T EVER GIVE UP, its true what they say "If at first you don't succeed, try try again! My art journey has been a labor of love, because it hasn't been easy, quite difficult most of the time because I love detailed work...challenging at best, but it has taught me a few things about myself...who I am, what my strengths are, and how much determination I really have!
PLEASE keep in mind when you are viewing other people's works of art, remind yourself that you too were once a beginner, and had humble beginnings! Art is ever evolving, and so very personal to the artist...so please pay it forward, and aspire to inspire others and please be kind when commenting!
"Hello" animation by:
Muriel mouse's lucky day
Muriel Mouse, if you please,
just loved a tasty bit of cheese.
She loved the smell lingering all around
and to her surprise one day she found,
one scrumptious piece in front of her door,
placed upon a small cheese-board.
Muriel clapped her hands in delight
wondering who could have been so nice,
she twitched her nose with the greatest of pleasure,
at a wonderful mouth-watering chunk of cheddar.
Then something shiny caught her eye,
a gleaming copper wire she spied
attached to a tiny metal flap.
Then Muriel knew, it was a trap!
So she fetched an empty wooden reel
she´d found amongst some pins and needles.
In the wink of an eye and without a trace,
cheese with reel she did replace.
Happily she began to laugh,
her Mama´s advice had sure paid off.
"Take cheese expertly from the board
and block the trap with a piece of wood!"
If she was asked I´m sure she´d say,
today has been a lucky day.
Safe back home,she enjoyed the feast
and her tummy full, fell fas
A Tale of Toadstool forest
A charming little caterpillar named Morris
who lived in a quiet toadstool forest.
While out for a stroll,
used his parasol,
to hide from a big bird named Horace.
Morris quite a chap, very cheeky
would stay still while Horace was peeking.
Just as Horace would blink,
Morris would shrink
to the size of an ant, small and sneaking.
Now Horace`s eyes they deceived him
as he stared with a glare over t` brim.
What was there before,
was Morris no more
and he thought to himself things look grim.
So Horace flew off in a huff,
while Morris gave a sigh and a puff.
Saying," twas a close call for me, I was almost his tea."
"I´ll go home now, for today that´s enough".

Muriel Mouse s Trick and Treat
Say have you ever seen,
especially on Halloween.
Muriel mouse roasting Pumpkin corn
and dreaming of the coming morn,
as she stares into the candle flame,
the casting shadows enlarge her frame
and all the demon cats who chased her
keep their distance, pace and stare,
not sure of what they´re looking at,
only sure it´s no darn cat!
All at once,it Pops and Cracks!
Scaredy-cats they raise their backs,
jump in the air and run away.
Muriel laughs and has to say.
"Good that I was able to hide
in this pumpkin right inside.
Here it´s warm with plenty to eat..
Mmmh popcorn´s ready, what a treat" !
