As a mother of seven biological and two step children, much of my life was dedicated to the raising of the children and I put painting on the back burner to accomplish this goal. I painted in oils when I was a teenager.
In 1988 I began painting in watercolors and fell in love with the unpredictable nature and vibrancy of the paints. I have added acrylics to my pallet and am enjoying painting with them, as well.
I have paintings in collections nationwide and have won several awards. I am thankful for the talent God has given me and will continue to paint until He calls me home.
