Inspiration for many of my paintings comes from walking through the woods in my Northern Indiana home where white tail deer, red fox, and wild turkeys are a daily occurrence.
When I am not painting, I am usually busy cleaning something muddy off of my two young boys. It's amazing how dirty boys can get in no time at all!
My husband, Jorge Penaherrera, is a native from Quito, Ecuador. Some of my pictures I have painted reflect the year I spent in there. The Mindo Jaguar picture, for example, was a composite of jungle pictures from visiting the Cloud Forest a couple hours outside of Quito. Anyone who has been to South America understands that the bus trip is only half of the fun..it's a wild place. :)
My other hobby involves horse back riding. I have a beautiful Friesian horse named Denali. After years of trying to out think my spooky horse with lead changes and calming techniques, I went to a draft breed and have never looked back. Pokey, bomb proof horses are my thing!
