About the Artist

I am a mental health counselor who uses art as one of the tools in my private practice. I paint and quilt for relaxation and because I love to create objects to give to others. 

Artist's Statement

I love the way watercolor represents nature - flowing, colorful and natural. I paint flowers, trees and landscapes. I am especially drawn to flowers and I try to plant wild flowers in our landscape.
