My husband and I have been fostering kids for the past 9 years. Last November we had an opportunity to adopt our 11 year old foster son. That has been very exciting. I'm also an animal lover and I love to create art.
What inspired you to start your business with your beautiful art?
I think my inspiration came when I found out that whenever I was drawing or creating my anxiety would diminish. From there, I discovered how much I loved creating and it's something that I've grown to love.
Yes, I would love to inspire the love of reading to young girls. In this fast paced world, I think that more and more girls are losing interest in reading great books. I thought it would be fun to create a series of fictional and nonfictional women who loved reading. Here's a few of the names of the girls I've been working on Anne Shirley, Jane Eyre, Elizabeth Bennett, Jo March and Maya Angelou.
The one that comes to mind is an art piece that I created for a dear friend's Aunt. It was a portrait of her daughter, who used to be a dance and who tragically had passed away at a young age leaving behind two beautiful children. When I delivered the portrait to the Aunt she started to cry. It was all so very touching. I felt so honored to have created that piece of art for her.
