you believe I love to draw!
first realized that I had a talent for art when I was in the third
grade, and I have been drawing and creating ever since. I'm at my
best with pen in hand, which that in itself can be a little scary,
because I doodle on everything. It's great to be able to do what
you love, and I love sharing my designs almost as much as I love
creating them. Creating designs that leave a warm place in your
heart, designs that make you smile, and designs you can look at
and know just what you want to do with them is my goal.
project took on a life of its own when I started creating bulletin
boards for teachers. I thought if they had a few good designs that
they could use over and over, designs that could be interchanged
with each other, it would save them a lot of time. One good thing
just leads to another. The designs have been used in many different
capacities. They have been used by scrap bookers, crafters, and
painters. I have always tried to create art that could be used as
a creative tool for others. Art that can be used to ignite the creative
side of the user. Over the years I have enjoyed seeing the many
ways you have used this art as an extension of your own creative
ideas. It is a helping hand really. You just have to use your imagination
and put the ideas together.
project like this doesn't happen without the help of many talented
people. People who are willing to give up hours and hours of precious
time, to live the dream with you, and go the distance. Many talented
artisans work with us as well. TerriLynn Gibbons, a daughter, has
created the Wild Animal series. Pauline Thayne, a daughter, along
with my sweet husband Paul have put in countless hours perfecting
the artwork and digitizing it all. Troy Thayne has been our technical
master and creative CD engineer.
of course to the many wonderful supporters of this work, YOU!
the sun always shine on you!
