I have always loved to paint and had hopes of becoming an art teacher in the elementary schools. However, while in college, I took a left turn and married my art professor who was a successful painter and printmaker. I redirected my artistic energies elsewhere, to my garden, home, and crafts, eventually taking that right turn and returning to school for a graduate degree and then working as a paralegal and office administrator.
I always felt that when the next right turn came, and with the time allowed by retirement, I would return to painting and I have. I have worked in various media but feel that I have finally found my artistic love, watercolor. It’s a media that gives me so much joy in choosing the subjects to paint and to find them coming to life out of the paper.
My subjects are from the world around me.
