About the Artist

I love painting local historical sites and landmarks, as well as the English countryside and Scottish Lochs. I enjoy traveling to different places and photographing anything that catches my eye for creative inspiration on my canvasses.

I am a follower of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and each day is not only a blessing, but another chance to exalt the name that is above all names, Jesus Christ.

I am married to a wonderful man, 34 years now, Dr Steven Mohlie, we have 4 great kids and 6 wonderful grandchildren.

Murals and Decorative Painting
I have expanded my fine art from the canvas to the wall. I am now painting murals in any theme, style  or size. I have created one of a kind art on the walls of residences, schools, libraries, fitness centers and doctor’s offices, this is in addition to custom paintings.  I also paint (both antiquing and scenes) on furniture, cabinetry, decorating accessories and clothing. My children’s murals are done in water based paints that can be easily painted over when the child outgrows the decor. The cost is reasonable and varies per job.

The Hidden Cardinal

Cardinal in the Snow
In my gallery, visitors have fun finding the hidden cardinal in each painting. It is the Virginia state bird, my namesake, and my special signature. When I tuck the little cardinal away in the painting, it is a symbol that the painting is finished and ready for that last special touch.

If you see something you like, or if my style is pleasing to your eye, feel free to email me. I especially enjoy the satisfaction that comes with providing my customers with a painting of exceptional quality.

Hawkcrest Beach
This is one of my latest paintings inspired by Hawkcrest Beach at Caneel Bay Resort, St John, U.S.V.I.
Ginger in Scotland
Scotland is one of my favorite places. This photo was taken in Scotland aboard a yacht that had at one time been owned by Queen Elizabeth. We had the pleasure of enjoying it for an evening of dinner and dancing.
