    I recently purchased your pattern packet, the pilgrims. I have been painting for over seventeen years and this has to be one of the best I have ever purchased. Twelve color photos and very detailed instructions. Thank you

    1. you just made this girl smile! What a nice compliment. I try to give what I would like to receive….Thank you so much! Enjoy!

  27. Cheri Gibbs says:

    Your work is AMAZING!!! I’m kind of confused. So you don’t sell finished pieces or am I just missing that on your site? I’m not real sure what the pattern would be. Since I’m in Alabama, I can’t come to your classes. 🙁
    Cheri Gibbs

    1. Thank you so much…your comment makes me smile! The Art that I create is Decorative Art, I create the piece, then put out the pattern to follow to create the piece yourself, whether in pencil or paint….the pattern has a supply list, instructions, a line drawing and many photos to help along the way….I do occasionally sell my duplicates from the classes I teach…they can be found on the ‘Samples and Duplicates’ tab! This will be updated to include more after the Holidays. Also…if you follow along on the blog there are a few free patterns to click onto and print, this will give you an idea of what a pattern is! Also…there are a few how-to videos too! Stop by often…always new things in the works!
