Born and raised for most part in Hartford TN. My family dates back to 1700’s in this area on both Mother and Fathers side of my family. I have been married 30 years to the love of my life and have 3 grown children and one grandchild on the way.
I began drawing at a very young age. When I was old enough I tried the paint by number pictures.
I painted and kept drawing through my life but only on random occasions.
I tried to get into art class in high school but couldn’t but I was allowed to sit in that class during my study hall one year.
I needed some color instruction, about 28 years ago Carroll Barger was offering an art class at Cocke County High School
on Tuesday nights for 6 weeks. I credit Carroll with teaching me to see colors in everything I look at.
This really gave me the bit of info needed to begin my journey in painting.
About 17 years ago I wanted to create a welcome painting for my mom and stepdad that was unique so I decided I would
paint them a horse scene on barn wood. This began my journey painting on wood and rustic items.
In 2011 I attended my first craft show as a vendor at the “On Cosby Festival”. I have attended around 30 since then.
I love painting, I am still learning, my goal is to make someone happy and hopefully bring a feeling of nostalgia
when viewing my barn, mountain, and wildlife scenes. My granny told me when I was 12 “practice makes perfect” I have
lots of work to do!
In 2018 I opened my art shop in the Glades Arts and Crafts Community of Gatlinburg. That didn’t work out but God provided me
with a wonderful job at Carson Newman University as HR Coordinator I am blessed.
