Welcome to my little corner of the universe.

My journey into the world of art began by watching Mom. She could work magic with a bit of paint and a brush. I was fascinated by how she could transform a flat blank canvas into a beautiful work of art. Now, several years later, I'm continuing in the footsteps I followed as a child watching Mom. Thanks for your inspiration and guidance!!!!

Doodle Art - Inspiration

How does a doodle happen? My first inspiration about doodle art came from a friend and co-worker, Leslie Raffelson. She is an awesome artist and photographer. (see a link to her website in my reading list) She also teaches graphic arts. One of her class projects was doodle art. I was inspired to try it out - bought a gel-pen and started to doodle. And a passion for doodle art was born.

Leslie asked if I would doodle her daughter's name. I was honored to be asked. Here it is. I think it turned out pretty good.

I'm going to have prints of my doodles made into a series of cards and black-framed wall art. I'm a bit nervous and at the same time, excited about the possiblities.
