I've always done some sort of crafting. I've done macrame, crocheting, floral arrangements, ceramics, clay. I started One Stroke Decorative painting in 2002 on my own. I was certified to teach in 2005 by Donna Dewberry. I've been teaching ever since. I love making gifts for people and I love teaching people how to paint. I teach at a Hobby Lobby craft store and I have a few private students.
