Born in the Eastern USA, I began creating art as a young child. I won my first prize in our schools art exhibit in my first grade year for a construction paper cut-out of a little dutch girl. I studied Art at West Chester University and have worked as a commercial artist/graphic designer for many years. I began painting with oils several years ago when I decided to start taking lessons once again to discipline myself to just do it and stop dreaming about doing it someday.
I paint the things that I care most about. I am very passionate about my art. I love painting! I love my subject matter! I love bright and vibrant color. My art encompasses my beliefs and thoughts. It is the way I visually express who and what I am. I try to convey the beauty and joy in life. I hope that my work relays the blessings that God gave us.
After the death of my husband, Bob,in 2015, I have found comfort and peace in my painting. Truly therapy for the soul.
Thru this PIL website I am both humbled and inspired by all of my fellow artists. I am amazed at all the talent that I see every day on this site.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork, for your kind comments and for the always inspiring me.
