I'm a mom to two wonderful young boys, an encourager, a hot cocoa drinker, and animal lover!
My artwork is inspired to prosper, empower and bring light into the lives of others so they may live in a mindset of victory. My faith in and relationship with God inspires my artwork as well as my business. Without that, I would not be able to do what I do and I might be doing something else that doesn't nearly fulfill me the same. I create artwork with His heart in mind, though you often won't see obvious Christian themes because I believe you can find God in almost anything beautiful and there is a whole world of creativity that can be seen in this universe in multiples ways.
I've been an artist at heart since childhood, drawing my favorite cartoon characters exactly as I see them!
After retiring from my career in Human Services, mainly Developmental Disabilities and mental health (B.A. in Psychology and M.S. in Counseling) I pursued my lifelong passion of creating art. I like to be free in my creation process, not having to fit into a box of one particular style in order to be able to create whatever I want and for whomever it is intended to go home to.
I'm mostly a self-taught artist, having never gone to formal schooling for art, though I've taken independent courses and learned from those in the field. In my free time, I enjoy the Outer Banks of North Carolina and sitting with the breeze (preferably in 70 degree weather) gently blowing on me with a warm cup of something in hand, dreaming of ways to leave things better than how I found them. I have passion for community unity and healing through the arts to help shape and influence culture, leaving it in a better place from one generation to the next.
I love hearing the testimonies from either the art sessions, paint nights and even the individual pieces themselves so feel free to share them by writing me HERE!
It took a while to name my business but I decided to name it after my own name. My name means crowned in victory, so I named my business Victorious Artworks.
