I am very excited!  Today at 2:00 eastern, Cherish Flieder’s six years of work will have a virtual ribbon cutting.  The is her brilliant creation.  I am thrilled to be a founding member.  This wonderful site is a safe place for licensing artists to show their designs to art directors who license art.  It is a virtual trade show where the art directors can wander up and down the aisles and see art that is available to them.  The artists are able to reach out to prospective clients, as well.  This site has a lot of working parts and is so well thought out and executed.  To be a part of it is amazing!

“Believe” is my word of the year.  It is the inspiration for everything I am working on, because I do believe that with enough hard work, anything is possible.  I am grateful for this opportunity!  If you are an art director, and you are a member of the site, click here to see my profile.  If you aren’t a member yet (it’s free to art directors who license art) simply contact Cherish at

Signs by Beth Building Sketch – 8″ x 10″

Here’s the initial sketch for the Signs by Beth sock monkey painting.  I wanted to get involved in the sock monkey project and do my building, too.  I am tickled with my jeep.  I never dreamed I’d be able to draw it where you could tell it was a jeep.  he he

About Grace Murray Hopper

Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, the American computer pioneer, was the first woman to become a Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer Society. She was born in 1906 in New York. By age seven, she was taking alarm clocks apart to see how they worked. She worked for the U.S. Navy developing the first compiler, which allowed people to write computer programs in real language rather than machine code. When she found a moth inside a computer, she coined the term “debugging.” She died in 1992.
