About Me

My desire is to create art that speaks to the heart and brings a smile to your face.

I am fascinated and delighted when I discover the unexpected in a piece of art.  Rock painting enables me to create one-of-a-kind, endearing objects for people of all ages and walks of life from an unexpected material found all around me in southeastern Colorado - rocks and stones.

As a believer in simple, natural, economical living, I’m recycling an ordinary item into something extraordinary.  Each application of paint brings the rock to life with a one-of-a-kind appearance that becomes a unique conversation piece when used as part of the Christmas nativity scene.

Watch this video to see how I transformed rocks and stones into endearing home and garden decor in 2014.
