Owner of Zinnia Sky Studios

Zinnia Sky Studio is all about greeting cards & art… and smiles!  I’m so glad you found me and I look forward to making you smile – thanks for being here ❤️!

Located in the amazing and beautiful desert on the western edge of Tucson, AZ, Zinnia Sky Studio came to be in late 2013.  As a transplant from Illinois, the desert grabbed my heart and soul and welcomed me with open arms.  I love translating my vision of the southwest into fun and whimsical art that touches the hearts of those who share my love of the desert.  Using birds, flowers, plants, landscape features and all things from nature, I use my paintbrush to add an extra pop of color and a bit of humor to make walls and people happy.

I’ve always created art but my husband and I restructured our lives so that art can now create our lives.  I love fun, bright, happy, whimsical things and I believe my desert subjects benefit from my interpretation of them.  I work primarily in watercolor but in vivid saturation perfectly complemented by black ink to further release the colors.
