Thank you for visiting my website, I am a retired widow and I really have a love of art. My days are filled with what to paint next. I love watercolor and have tried other mediums over the years but always come back to watercolors. I was raised in Portland, Oregon and have 2 grown children and 2 Grandchildren and 3 Great grandchildren. Life has been good to me. Art is a feeling inside of you that comes out in a paint brush, I never know how a painting is going to turn out it is like a experiment that has a different out come every time.

I am a self taught artist. I was born in Portland, Oregon.
I can remember my art teacher in high school she was so inspiring for me, she made me want to make my living doing nothing but art work, Back then I studied dress design. I wanted to draw those beautiful fashion drawing that used to be in the paper, back in the sixties. Then my love turned to drawing horses, I couldn't get enough of drawing horses.
Then I realized that I had to be a wife, and mother of 2 children, and that took a whole lot of my spare time.
The years went by but my love for art never faded, Since my retirement I have spent some wonderful hours doing what makes me so happy.
Now my hours are filled with ART.

And now in 2013. I am all grown up and still love art I have experimented with all the mediums, but what I really love to work with is Watercolor, I find that the flow of paint mixed with different colors is so thrilling, the way that it flows on the paper and adding layer after layer to make the pigment darker is timely but worth every minute. I am working with FAA and eBay to sell my work and doing fine I have some loyal followers. I will be keeping my blog up to date so go there and read what's new.
