In my heart-of-hearts, I have always harbored a secret desire to illustrate children's stories. From the early designs for fabric art patterns to my current work, I think much of my art reflects that desire. The above photos show my inclination to allow my art to suggest a story. I hope it says something to you.

If you enjoyed seeing these photos of my artwork, you might enjoy seeing my Art Gallery. See link below.

You are a natural for illustrating children's stories. You should try writing a story and illustrating it, you never know what may happen. That way at least you won't have to say "I wonder if"!! Good luck with it.

Sue Ellen: Thank you so much. Your original painting "Morning Glow" that I saw on your blog, Art Bistro - Fine Artworks at, just takes my breath.

Suzanne, Thank you for taking time to peek in! I'm so honored to be added to your lovely blog, Shabby Cottage Designs. I included both sites to my page - your items available at your shop are so fresh and unique, always leaves me drooling. How, oh how, do you turn out so many beautiful pastel rose paintings? I better get to work or there won't be a wall left in the world to hold one of mine! You will have filled them all up!
