Folk art display and sale

The art of life is to live in the present moment, and to make that moment as perfect as we can by the realization that we are the instruments and expression of God Himself.

The pieces in red will be displayed at the First Friday Exhibit at the Vancouver Community Library May 4th-7th and will be up for sale after the 8th  of May.

Happy Spring!

I'm an American self taught folk artist and an embroider living in the Northwest.  I have been an artist for over 20 years working mostly in oils and embroidery.  Art has always been a means of expression to me, it is my way of communicating a visual story in a way that all can hear from every age group. Art can even bypasses any language barrier. 

30 percent of all proceeds goes to help with clean water, hunger, child trafficking and the protection of children with the charity World Vision.
