The Dairy industry has been a huge influence on my life...My work is a reflection of who I am; I paint the sites and scenes or rural America and the face of the dairy industry and its lifestyle. It is all about the life I've lived and what I believe - it is the things that bring me joy and happiness.  I am appreciative that there are people who love the same things I do, as it's the people who buy my work who give me a reason to paint. Success and happiness lie in working hard and believing in what you do. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to not only grow up on a dairy farm, but also to raise our family on one!

There really is no greater place in the world to raise a family and to teach your children about responsibility, family values and working together, laying a foundation and preparing them for the life that lies ahead.  Whether they end up in the dairy industry or otherwise, it's a great way to prepare them for life with the daily life lessons that occur on a dairy farm. 

Check out this great blog post by The Bullvine, "12 Lessons You Can Only Learn from Growing Up On A Dairy Farm"... It's a fun read and all so TRUE--It really brought me back to my childhood and is a great reminder of the lessons I hope my children are learning everyday growing up on the farm: CLICK HERE TO READ!
