About me

Interesting Info



I have always loved  drawing and painting, from little on, taking many painting classes after school!   My post high school education and art career began in Commercial Art. As we raised our family, I  taught art to  children out of my home.  I now offer  workshops to adults.

As an artist, I own the Copyright for all my paintings. as do all creators of intellectual property unless it is stated otherwise.  Thank you!

My Watercolors



In my watercolor paintings, the white is the white of the paper, the colors sometimes are several colors layered over each other, creating amazing luminosity. Washes and unusual textures are created using techniques unique to this medium.

My Oils and Acrylics



In oil and acrylic painting,  dark colors are applied first, building up to the light highlights.  The design and elements can be altered by painting over the area desired. In that respect, oil and acrylic paints are more forgiving that watercolor. 

You may find me painting with oils and watercolors at some Plein Air (outdoor painting) events or just during a good weather streak!
