My love for drawing, painting and creating goes back to my growing-up days. I can remember that as a young child my mother would take me into the city of Philadelphia to the Art Museum so that I could take oil painting lessons. When I was in high school, I took drawing lessons and experimented with pastels. Then came college, majoring in business, marriage and raising a family. During those years any interest that I had in art was moved to the “back burner” so to speak.

My husband and I retired to Amelia Island in 1987. Little did I know at the time that I would find myself right in the heart of a growing art community. Artist friends encouraged me to pick up a pencil and draw, pick up a brush and paint. I tried my hand at watercolor and immediately fell in love with the medium.

I have taken instructions in watercolor from nationally acclaimed watercolorists and have evolved my own style through the years. I love to paint loosely and impressionistically and I love to use bright colors.

My work can be found in The Island Art Association Gallery, The Plantation Guild and Gallery and in various exhibits on Amelia Island.
