What is Art from the Heart?

One day at an art show, a man walked into the Essence of Laurel booth. He was very taken by my work and asked me, “where within you does this come from?” I pointed to my heart and said, “right here - it is story art from my heart.” The man smiled and said, “I can see that.” It was then that I knew the name for my artwork  should be Art from the Heart.  


Many people ask me, when viewing my work, “What is that – is it a photograph? Is it a painting? What medium do you use?”


Digital tools have given me the freedom to create captivating and unique art for home and heart. Here is a description of my medium:


“I digitally combine my photographs, pastels, and drawings, and  blend them to create a new composition.  I then go into my digital toolbox and create new colors, shapes, lines, curves, details, and perspectives ~ until the piece speaks to me and tells me its name. 


The words I hear most often at art shows, when people encounter at my work, are “inspirational” and “moving.” It is then that I know that my unique art has touched someone’s spirit and found its purpose. 

  •  'Art from the Heart'  is filled with whimsical and dreamlike weaves of color, movement, and light.  
  • Each piece fuses elements from original pastels, photographs, or mixed media collages into an newly inspired art form.   
  • Art from the Heart will grace your home with it's story-filled perspective.

For me, the best description of 'Art From the Heart'  is that it is bestowed by life and embroidered by imagination!
