My love of art started at a young age when I began drawing and painting our animals and the scenery in the mountains of Colorado.  I continued to enjoyed my artistic endeavors when I could as my husband and I raised four children. I enjoyed learning pen and ink, watercolor, woodcarving, silversmithing and metal engraving as the years have gone by.  My husband and I moved to Wyoming a couple of years ago to get away from the busyness of Colorado. I lost the love of my life, Tom, last year to cancer. I am so grateful to my family and friends for their wonderful support. God gave us 41 wonderful years together. He always encouraged me to continue my artistic endeavors. The Shiloh Sharps you see on my Gun Engraving page was his gun. Wyoming is a great place to be inspired by God's creation and the Western culture.

I find it important to learn from those who have mastered their skills and am so grateful for those willing to share them with others.
