Aurora Illinois native, first of nine children. My whole life I have been creative, not necessarily successfully creative but creative none the less. I was always making things but I was almost never happy with them. They never lived up to what I had imagined. Then it happened, my kids were grown, I finally had a little disposable income and time and my husband and I decided to get our basement finished. We agreed to epoxy the floor. I loved it, the color, the movement, how easy it was to keep clean. We had a custom bar built and I had a vision for how that could look and asked the contractor to materialize my vision, he said sure. I was pretty sure he had no idea what I was talking about so I said never mind, I'm going to do it myself. You Tube here I come! It was terrible. I knew I was going to repour it and spent the next three months practicing, researching, learning and falling in love with the entire process. The task of modifying the paint - the science and math of it all. I started out modifying by weight, then volume and finally by feel. So many variations to choose from on how to deliver the paint to the substrate. The pouring was so much fun to watch. And then to see it dry and be so excited to share it with others. It gives back more than I put into it. I just can't stop. I've been pouring on any flat service I can find ever since and then I even started painting the occupants (animals inspired by photos) of my paintings with that same modified paint. It was so forgiving and the do-overs are endless which really takes the pressure off and allows the whole process to be fun. I'm a data analyst by day, math was always my favorite subject and I always colored within the lines. I love a spreadsheet, a list, control and schedules and now I have learned to love handing over that control to the paint. I pick the colors, the substrate, the vehicle, the delivery method and the paint picks the outcome. It's a beautiful surprise! Every single time! And if I don't like what the paint has done, I can just pour again. Every day is a good day to pour, especially outside the lines.
