Thank you so much for exploring Living Waters Creations and I hope you enjoy your journey here. This site is an accumulation of over 50 years of drawing, coloring, painting, sewing, making and loving everything creative. I have said many times that creativity leaks from my pores. Sometimes there is nothing I can do but to just find an outlet and let what is inside of me come out in some form of art. I was born in Glendale, CA and grew up the small Central Valley town of Lemoore, CA. I spent my college years at UCLA studying art and psychology then went straight into a career as a graphic designer working for advertising agencies. After getting married in 1989 I continued to work and create while becoming the mother to three amazing daughters. Sadly, a divorce side tracked me but I landed a great job that allowed me to continue to work on my graphic skills and still provide for my family. I now live in Aliso Viejo, CA about 2 miles from the creative enclave of Laguna Beach where creativity is in the water we drink and the ocean that meets the sand. One regret is that I was never afforded the opportunity to fully invest in my creative skills as a full time fine artist.

After looking for ideas to create a Halloween costume on the internet, I landed on the page of skilled artist and signed up to take a class in “Painting on Silk”. That decision has changed my life. It seems that everything that I have loved to do, create costumes, paint, draw, design and imagine all came together with this fine art of using dyes to paint on silk. Living Waters Creations was a download from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He has led my way in learning this craft and opened doors that I didn’t even know I wanted look into. I am truly blessed to have the God given talent to think of something then make it come to life and give him all the glory as I dive deep into the waters of this endeavor of making wearable silk art. Thank you for visiting and may God bless you!
