|"I can remember as a child sitting for hours drawing pictures of animals from magazines. With the
encouragement of my mother, I began oil painting at about the age of 12. Through my early years in school, I
experimented with different mediums and explored numerous styles and subjects.
As life would have it, I abandoned my own passions for the demands of a career and the needs of my family.
My love of art became a part of my past.
In 2005, my husband and I relocated from the dry arid desert of Las Vegas, Nevada to lush green
Summerville, South Carolina. This has been a very rewarding move which has allowed both my husband and I
to reinvent our lives and renew our passions for the arts.
Now I begin my journey again. Primarily self-taught, I am always exploring new mediums and techniques,
seeking new teachers and learning the art of self expression.”
