Welcome!


Welcome!

I’m glad you’re here!

Over the last two decades of professional work as an artist, I find a sketchbook to be the lens through which I can see the world, my town, my life.

Through the end of my pen and brush, I’m able to really see my life as a wife, mother, small town citizen, knit & crochet teacher, and all around maker. Without this practice of making marks on a page, I lose sight of the beauty that is right under my feet. It is as if my drawing and painting implements sweep away the collected dust and enable me to focus on the moment at hand.

Through meandering lines, rich colors and textures, I can find meaning in the mundane, purpose in the painful as well as the pretty parts of daily living. It is all abstracted and compressed into a humble sketchbook, the pages of which are sometimes sold and often shared as a means to encourage others to do the same.

Join me in drawcumenting life !

    Yeah! I have just taught myself to knit and crochet over the last year and I am very excited that you are sharing this blog with us. I have loved reading Drawn2Life and being able to share in the gifts our Father has graced you with. I am just as excited to see all the beautiful things in yarn!
