About

I started painting in 1996, after careers in the business world. Why did I wait so long?

I love to portray persons, either portrait or figures. Something of the persona comes through. Several media are appealing to me, including brush and ink, oils, water colors, and conti crayon. Currently I’m loving the spontaneity of using Chinese brush and ink.

Plein air painting and still life are also subjects I work with. I have won awards in Swannanoa Fine Art League exhibits—2nd place in oil, and honorable mention for an ink portrait. Grace Centre included my works in their qualifying shows, and I received honorable mention in 2014..

Painting and drawing are avenues for accessing my higher, true self. I love it!!
