Hi! My name is Velvet!
I’m so glad you stopped by to read a little about me!
I was born and raised in Arvada, Colorado. Since I was little, I had two passions: children and art. I remember sitting at the “kids” table at family holiday events well into adulthood, entertaining my younger cousins and telling silly stories.
My Dad’s family is very artistic, and being the daughter of a fantastic oil painter, I picked up painting early. Combining these two life-long loves has shaped who I am: A child-loving artist.
I now have three kids of my own and have worked with kids for much of my life. I worked in daycare for over 15 years, and also served as a foster mom to many kiddos.
Working with kids is my life’s calling and embracing that fact has taken over my occupation as well as my lifestyle. To put it simply, kids have transformed me!
