Ever since I was a young girl I have enjoyed wandering about in the woods exploring and searching for treasures. My family and I lived in the Pacific Northwest. In Alaska & Oregon I would find driftwood, pieces if moss and sea shells.

I moved to Wyoming as a young wife and in my wanderings would find fossils, petrified wood and awesome rocks. This is where I began beading and making earrings out of porcupine quills.

In recent years we bought a cattle/buffalo ranch in North Dakota. Now in my wanderings I find bones and skulls that I paint on. I love creating. My designs are inspired by nature, the colors in a sunset, a walk in the woods, the sun shinning off a clear blue lake.

My Etsy Shop gives me a creative outlet and fuels my dreams of one day becoming a professional artist.
