Hodgepodge Art, my chosen name, certainly fits me. It was taken to reflect my multiple interests. Varied art experiences keep me motivated. For instance, mixed media collage, woodworking, and quilting are skills I believe continue to change my artistic perspective positively.

My artist brand seen many places i.e.. website, professional cards, art pieces etc., indicates my prairie roots of Nebraska with its buffalo, and the 3-pt. Celtic design in the circle shows my ancestry reaching beyond the Mayflower to Europe.
