I am a 4th generation artist in my family. I am a wife and mom (he's going to be 9 soon, so it has to be 'Mom', not 'Mommy') :) I work an outside job for about 30 hours a week, but would much prefer to stay home practicing my art. I put down my pencils and brushes to raise my little boy, but he is actually helping me to refocus my attention back to where my first love lies. I don't know when/if I will get back into painting, right now pencils seem to be my passion. I will get some pieces up ASAP.
