I have been painting full time since 2014. After 23 years in the military and 35 years in sales and sales management, I am on an art journey in my retirement years. I like to believe I have been taking lessons and learning from some of the best. I picked up a brush full time and began to really study painting in 2014.
I find inspiration all around me. I love painting magical moments and I paint from my heart. I started my painting journey with watercolors, moved into enamel and acrylic paints, and recently have been enjoying batik painting and painting with wine ... yes, the wine you drink. Every medium is a learning lesson.
I was blessed to reside in the Florida Keys, so I was inspired a lot. My work can be found in several galleries, like Guild Hall Gallery, Key West; Artists in Paradise, Big Pine Key; Gilded Matilda's, Wildwood; and now, here at Rainbow Springs Art in Dunnellon. My husband and I are building a home in Inverness and reside with our two fur babies, both golden retrievers. They are Buddy, and Charlotte, AKA Charlie. We have two grown children and five grandchildren. We love to travel with our fifth wheel RV, going to visit art-inspiring locations.
