My novels and short stories in the Painter Place Saga take place on a fictional island on the coast of South Carolina, between Charleston and Myrtle Beach. I was inspired to write Painter Place when my son encouraged me to write the kind of book I wanted to read, but couldn’t find. My original paintings are used in the covers and inside the pages of the novels. They are part of the appeal of this unusual series.
I write to the same audience I paint for--myself--and all my work is meant to glorify Christ (1 Corinthians 10:31, Colossians 3:17). I share with readers and art collectors, hoping they will feel as if they've taken a walk in a warm Southern breeze and the sunshine we're famous for.
My perspective on writing books and painting is like that of the iconic artist Norman Rockwell, who once said he knew life was not ideal, but it should be, so he chose to paint it that way. I've experienced enough "reality" in my life. Now I seek the warm, whimsical, loveable, and ideal in my creativity! I hope readers will laugh out loud, sigh with longing, be inspired to reach higher, and feel refreshed when they reach the end of my novels.
I write clean fiction from an unapologetically Christian worldview. My stories often feature artists and art perspectives that will help any reader have a deeper appreciation for painting.
I live life loving Jesus and my family as a wife, mother, and GiGi. I'm blessed with true friends who make my life so interesting and inspire names and situations in my stories! I believe sketching, painting, and coloring soothes and heals, so I offer free coloring pages on my websites. My YouTube channel has free art demos, Inspired Art Appreciation art history education lessons, and reading excerpts from the Painter Place stories, and my blogs take readers behind the scenes for insider secrets.
