When I was a young girl, I loved to draw, paint and create. In high school I took drawing and painting lessons and even experimented with pastels. College, majoring in business, marriage, raising a family and a career in real estate put any interest in art on the back burner.
When we retired from our careers in 1987, my husband and I moved to Amelia Island from Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Here I found myself right in the midst of an art community. My artist friends encouraged me to pick up a pencil and draw and I
soon tried my hand at watercolor. I fell in love with it. I then took lessons and workshops from several renowned watercolorists.
I enjoy working with strong colors in an impressionistic style. Recently I have tried my hand at acrylics and with that medium I am reaching out to do abstract painting.
I have been a member of the Island Art Assn. since 1998 and am also a member of the Plantation Artists Guild and Gallery.
