Willma lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family.
She has loved creating art since she could pick up a crayon.
Willma's skills are valuable and have made a big difference in the companies where she has previously been employed. One example is her collaborative work at Boeing. All airlines flying Boeing planes send their pilots to Boeing for training. Pilots from airlines around the world have seen her graphics and animations. In her own small way, working with a team, she has helped millions of people safely get to where they need to go.
Currently she is pursuing teaching acrylic painting to her friends.

I actually baked and decorated this train cake. The printshop I worked for wanted original art for a Holiday card. So I painted a watercolor of the cake. Then we ate the cake.
I love fences. Boundaries keep us safe. These cows stay safe until they're put in the freezer.
While enjoying a cup of coffee, I painted my surroundings.
A walk down my lane. In real life the lane has gravel.
