Artist statement

I am a happy, positive, and outgoing person! My favorite things to do are going bowling, watching game shows, making jewelry, and drawing my friends and favorite celebrities. The best game shows on TV are Jeopardy with my man Alex Trebek, Family Feud with my man Steve Harvey, Cash Cab, Wheel of Fortune, The Newlywed Game, and Match Game. I love to listen to country music whenever I can, especially Jeanne C. Riley, Johnny Cash, June Carter, and George Jones. My favorite song of all time is “Harper Valley PTA” by Jeanne C. Riley, and she is also the celebrity I draw most often. The subject of most of my art is portraits of these amazing TV show hosts, talented country music stars, and famous people because I enjoy their incredible talent and they always make me happy! I am proud of myself when I draw beautiful portraits with crayons, paint, oil pastels, markers, and screen-print my designs. I love it!
