About the Artist

I am a retired Occupational Therapist from Rochester and other upstate New York areas. I have been doing colored pencil art for about 15 years and love the development of the medium over recent years. I live with my husband John and have a son and mother who remained in Rochester.

Artist's Statement

I have been in Florida for 3 years now and am enjoying learning all about the native plants of Florida. This exhibit allowed me to join two of my favorite pastimes colored pencil drawing and native plants.
