Nature. It has been in my bones since birth. In earlier years, every rock, flower and piece of wood was just the right one to complete my latest and greatest project. Now, they are the main story line of my paintings.
A lifelong interest in art coupled with a need to learn new creative avenues initiated my focus on fine art. Many courses with local, national and international instructors and hours of self-instruction has fed my passion to express God's glory with oils, pastels and watercolors. Art brings me joy; my goal is to share that joy with you!
