I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed.

Blogging and Vulnerability
Over 4 years I've come here. Four years of writing and growing.
This blog started as more of a scrapbook; a place to document the journey of life.
But over time it has become more.
It has seen hard times and joy, encouragement and growth.
~~I have been told, more than once, that as an artist I should keep my blog professional;
Only share about art and techniques.
Never talk about anything too personal such as children or beliefs.
You might offend people.
But how can I share about my art without sharing where it comes from?
Some days the empty comment box blinks at me and I wonder......
~~But life spills out into art and through this place I have come to see
that maybe my words can be art too.
If my risk of being vulnerable encourages just one person
than I am willing to risk.
And so I dip my brush into the paint,
I place my fingers onto the keys,
and I write.
