When I was young, I used to sit outside in our yard that backed up to the woods for HOURS observing bugs and lifting rocks to see what would crawl out. I also created lots of artwork. I could never make up my mind what I wanted to be when I grew up, a biologist or an artist. So I did both.

The Bumbleshack Studio is full of creations that make me happy. I am inspired by all creatures great and small, bold color, Pop Art, nature, recycling and mid-century modern design. I make paintings, art prints and canvases, tote bags, note and greeting cards and household decor. Pet portraits are my specialty, and my favorite things to create!

I live in a tiny house on wheels called The Bumbleshack in the mountains of western North Carolina, and I work from my home studio with my 4 year old daughter, a huge Golden Retriever/Bernese Mountain Dog and two cats. I also have a 14 year old daughter in high school and a great hubby, who is a computer programmer and my technical support.
