About Me

My interest in graphics began when I was looking for a custom set for my genealogy page.  I couldn't find one that I really liked, so I decided to design my own.  I bought Paint Shop Pro, followed some tutorials and went at it.  My first attempts at graphics were pitiful, it took me almost 6 months before I could make anything that was even roughly identifiable, but eventually I got the hang of it.  All of my graphics are made with Paint Shop Pro and Blade Pro, a neat plug-in.  Although I have no formal computer, art, or graphics training and I'll be the first to admit that these aren't the best sets you'll see on the web,  I enjoy making them and hopefully you will enjoy them too.

 I was born in North Carolina but my parents moved to Michigan when I was four and I've been here ever since.  I graduated from Waterford Township High School in 1969 and attended Central Michigan University for a while before deciding that I didn't have a clue as to what I wanted to do.  I went to work in a hospital as a desk clerk and decided that I could do what those nurses were doing and they were making a whole lot more money than I was.  So I went to nursing school and became a Registered Nurse.   I have worked at North Oakland Medical Centers for the past 20 years.  I have been in the Endoscopy Department (or Butts and Guts, as we are affectionately called) for the last 12 years and I have a Certification in Gastroenterology Nursing.   But in my fantasy world I get to stay home and play on the computer, doing my graphics and genealogy full-time. 

My husband Bob and I have been married for 32 years and we have a 25 year old son.  We also have a crazy, epileptic dog named Buddy who is spoiled rotten and king of the house. 

Despite being a born-and-bred Yankee, my husband loves the south as much as I do and we hope to retire to North or South Carolina in a few years.  We visit my relatives in North and South Carolina as often as we can, usually several times a year.  For right now, we enjoy traveling, gardening, golf and activities with the Michigan Fiero Club.  We own 3 Fieros at the present time, including my 1987 Fiero that Bob found in a junk yard in South Carolina.  He did a frame-off restoration on it and I drive it every day.

So what sums up my life?  The house is dirty, the laundry needs washing, the dog needs a bath,  I have to work tomorrow and I can't get myself off the 'puter!
