About The Artist

I live and have raised my family in Franklin, Tennessee. In 1988 I received a Master of Architecture degree from Georgia Tech. After getting my fill of designing custom homes and historic preservation, I felt it was time to make a change.

I knew it had to be something creative.

One night, I had a unique conversation with my daughters teenage babysitter at a time in her life when she was trying her best to figure herself out. The conversation was all about what it was she truly believed in and how she could best live her life in accordance with her beliefs.

Inspired by that conversation and the innate desire to inspire my own three daughters. I trademarked the i. b.liev’n… logo and began creating what I call "credos" on small canvases. The art, I feel, is in the creative wording as much as in the colorfully covered layered paper canvases. Collectively, my "credos" touch an array of human emotions…from funny to hopeful and from encouraging to building self-confidence. Their purpose is to be fun and inspiring!

I hope they make you smile.

My Copper hand stamped Jewelry and Storywires have become a natural extension to my "MyPersonalCredo" brand.

I believe in and love what I do!
