St. Francis

My art can go in a lot of different directions. I find inspiration most everywhere, from Christmas to Angels to flowers and nature to Disney and Peanuts.

Davy Jones

I had a great time at Disney World last week, thanks to everyone for coming out! It was quite a crowd! And there was a lot of buzz about Pirates of the Caribbean! Understandable with a new movie coming out and the 50th anniversary of the ride this summer. I’m looking forward to both! Here’s […]
