About Me



I am a self-taught mixed media/craft artist. I like to alter photographs, magazines, book pages and anything else I can get my hands on. I love using texture and 3D objects in my art.

I live with my husband, son, cat and dog in sunny South Carolina. I’m a mother, wife, homemaker, artist, blogger … I could go on and on! I started the blog My Pure Joy in a time of my life when I felt kind of bummed and lost. I knew that if I looked hard enough, I could find joy – everyday – beyond the obvious joys I have with my family. And it worked! It has forced me to look at my life more positively and try things I would never have tried before. And I’m not done yet! I want to inspire others to find joy in their lives and pass it on to their family and friends.

Will you join me?
