About the Artist

Having loved to draw and paint,in pastel, graphite etc,.since childhood I now have more time. I have enjoyed drawing and painting my grand children, every stroke a hug and a kiss!, Learning from others and taking all workshops I can fit in my schedule. I have about every kind of art.supply, need anything? chances are I have it! 

Artist's Statement

I find peace and tranquilty as I depict nature as I see it,in my watercolor paintings. I use a layering technique, which I learned in Elizabeth Kincaids class 15 years ago. The beauty in nature, gardening, walking inspires me to respond. JOY
