I will forever love fence posts… has to come from growing up in the country. I am so thankful there are talented photographers who allow me to attempt recreating some of their masterpieces!
Welcome to my little world. I’m 33 now, wow time flies. Being an artist was never something I’d dreamt of being but here I am loving the journey and I’ve only been dabbling at it for 4 years now. To be honest I dreamt of becoming a crime scene investigator for years, but math was not my strong suit! In a way, that dream came true though by having 2 boys ages 12 and 9, I constantly find myself investigating things like “who ate the last cookie, or who broke something and neither claims to have done it!” ha-ha.
For my main “job” I farm with my husband of 12 years (this summer I’m rounding up honey), it’s hard but neither of us can imagine any other lifestyle! You’d think the hours for painting would be unlimited but mostly I’m squeezing in my time when the kids are in bed or with their dad doing farm things. Being a “stay at home mom” offers lots of variety on the daily, and freedoms I’ll never take for granted. Spending hours in our kitchen is one of my favorite things to be doing, creating treats and meals for everyone. If you’ve met me I’ve probably offered you a snack, and there’s ALWAYS baking on the counter to grab.
I’m a self-taught artist, topping up new skills by watching the occasional You-Tube video and morphing ideas into my own. My grandmother used to paint everything and anything she could get her hands on from plywood to cow patties she could make art out of anything!! Yes, I’m serious she used to make clocks out of cow poop, they were famous with the military and they loved to ship them home overseas! Something I wish I had been old enough to watch, learn and carry on perhaps. However, getting the gift of her painting skills has been so freeing for my mind and soul. It’s free therapy I swear.
I thought it was important to offer the best quality prints I could buy using an amazing photographer to achieve the right lighting and angles. I met Tiffany when we had our second son for a newborn shoot, and we’ve been enjoying her talents ever since! We book her for all our family photos and kid’s school photos; there is no comparison!
