My Gallery Wall
My art reflects my love of nature and my appreciation of our American heritage. I can often be found browsing through antique shops and second-hand stores for inspiration. I love traveling south for the winter, where I take pictures, and sometimes I will set up on the beach or some inspirational place and paint what I see. My paintings remind people of happy memories of their own. Teaching classes is important to me, but I am very much a student. I love to share with others the knowledge and insight gained as a self-taught artist. I like trying new things and continuing to read, study, and learn from others most days or evenings are spent painting or planning my next project.
My mother and great-grandmother were artists. I started painting as a tribute to my Mom, it has become my life’s passion and brings me joy.
