I have always enjoyed decorating and working with flowers. I never dreamed of being an artist until I was introduced to the One Stroke painting technique in 2003. This technique was created and developed by Donna Dewberry. I fell in love with the “Rose” my favorite flower and wanted to learn to paint it. I did master the Rose and today it is one of my specialties.
In May, 2004, I took the official certification class and became a One Stroke Certified Instructor (OSCI). In 2005, I retired from my full time job of over 30 years and decided to start my own specialty painting service business. In May, 2008, I took the Level II Certification class so I could increase my knowledge and creativity in painting for my customers. I needed to have the time to pursue my art work and market my pieces through special orders of customers and by participating in choice art/craft shows. Through this endeavor, I have met some wonderful people who inspire me and also want to take a painting lesson from me. I take a lot of pride in my work and especially aim to please my customers and students.
I continue to challenge myself in learning to paint new things and I love that part of it, because I continue to grow. I hope I can be of special service to you in a custom paint job, teach you in a personal class or inspire you to do the things you love. Nothing is impossible once you learn this technique. It is truly the love of my life, next to my family. It has really enriched my life and I thank God for giving me this beautiful gift. Thanks for visiting my website, I hope we can meet or chat on the web sometime, I look forward to it.
