Welcome to Oodles of Doodles Painting Parties!

Who knew when my daughter gifted me with a birthday paint night that I would discover a new passion and love for painting?  I was one of those "I can only draw stick figures" people, so I was amazed when I walked away with something recognizable!

I was hooked!  And as time went by, I began to ask, "Why not bring this awesome experience to my friends and community?" After an enormous amount of encouragement and help from my family and friends, O
odles of Doodles Painting Parties was born!  I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all my family and friends that convinced me to "take that leap of faith" !  I have to admit, I LOVE what I do! 

And I want to thank all of you that continue to paint with me in your homes, businesses, churches, as I relocate to the beautiful state of Michigan!  I have delighted in painting with each and everyone one you and watching as that sense of awe and accomplishment comes across your faces!  It is amazing and inspiring!

But above all, I'd like to thank the Lord, for it is through Him, all things are possible...and remember, "It's more than just a painting, it's a gift of time!"

Much Love,



"Lots and lots of fun and I have no artistic talent but she walks you through step by step and you can mess up and fix it!! Great time!!!"
