A little bit of everything…

book.jpg04.17.2007 I have always been an artist.  Now that is not to say I was purged from my mother’s womb with a paintbrush ranting about Degas or Dali.  I just always saw things differently, including myself. 

 I grew up in a typical family… mother, father, older sister and myself.  We lived in the same two story yellow house my entire childhood.  My father worked as a librarian at a local public high school until retiring a couple years ago.  My mother worked as a bookkeeper/accountant until my Sophomore year of high school.  My darling nephew was born in 1994 and is now approaching his 13th birthday.  Needless to say my family is a big part of my life.

 I was one of those semi-geeky-artsy kids in high school who was determined to graduate with no less than a 4.0 GPA, which I did achieve.  Then it was on to college.  I struggled a bit deciding on a major.  I adored science, writing and art… what should I do with my life?  Art made sense… I was interested in it and I always loved spending hours drawing.  I graduated from Cardinal Stritch University in December of 2000 with a BA in Studio Art. 

After college I performed what I like to call a “self-lobotomy.”  I found a job that met my immediate needs.  I needed money and insurance.  The result was a miserable me who lost all sense of who I was.  I was an Artist without any aspect of art left in my life.  Luckily, recent events have turned me back to my passion ~ creating “Art.”  I am currently employed at a local print shop as the “Color Graphics Specialist” which offers some creative outlet with monetary compensation.

Feel free to scope out some of my recent works at my DeviantArt site: http://flugal.deviantart.com .  I recently joined the local art association and plan on sharing my more noteable works.  Stay tuned for more drawings, photos, and artist books.  I have always enjoyed gardening and reading so there may be some blog entires regarding those topics as well.

I suppose this will suffice as a proper introduction.  Thank you for visiting!
