I have always been extremely curious and was born with a need to create. Growing up in the woods in Michigan, I spent a lot of time sketching and painting outside. I have a deep love of nature and my artwork is almost always botanical themed or full of organic lines.
My hobbies involve any type of creating. Drawing and painting were my first love, but I also enjoy sewing and working on my house, particularly carpentry, since I see it as another art form.
While the bulk of my time is spent being the Mom of two very active little boys, I also do freelance graphic design work and teach Adobe software. If you live in Denver, you can check out my available courses at Arapahoe Community College.
I am passionate about creating and love to teach, and I hope this blog encourages others to pursue their own creative interests.
I have a collection of detailed, botanical themed oil paintings and illustrations on my fine art website.
AVS Design Studio
I started AVS Design Studio four years ago so I could work from home and spend more time with my boys. I create graphics and set up websites, check out my portfolio here.
