I've loved color, words, writing, hand lettering and doodling for as long as I can remember, but for much of my life I kept those things in separate jars. Then one day, I thought "Hmmm. What if...?" I tossed everything in a bowl, put the mixer on high, and I found that I liked living in my chaos of wordy color. So I stayed, and named it Artsyville. It's my work, play and therapy all in one. Lots of things inspire me: my husband and two girls, traveling near and far, whims, a bottle of wine, color, old houses, villages, alley art, impending thunderstorms, and strange things as well as the mundane.
