My first ever Iris and I will be painting more. This one from my own photo taken at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum - when I see the beauty in a place like that it makes me wonder "how much more beautiful could heaven possibly be?"
As a child I began designing my own clothes while in 5th grade. Grandma let me use fabric from her stash and showed me how to use the treadle machine. My love for art and the creative began at that point, always having a current project of some kind. Painting has provided a unique creative outlet for me that I am thankful for, an exciting journey where there's always something new to learn.
