I have always been creative. I got in trouble ALL the time in my early education years for doodling and drawing in class. When riding my horse, I broke my hip and ended up having pins put in it, which meant no walking for 6 months. That is how I began doing art semi-professionally. First I started with oils, then moved on to acrylics, and then started doing glass engravings/paintings. My subject matter mostly revolves around dogs and horses, since these two animals are a huge part of my life.
