As a professional Interior Designer, I have been involved with creative pursuits for twenty-five years. My actual foray into painting began as a healing art in 1986 after a family tragedy. An angel mentor invited me to a watercolor class in the fall of that year, and I have been painting since that time. I wake up everyday to the discovery of learning and capturing life moments in an art form. I am intent on the truth of using artistic elements and various mediums: oil, watercolor, pastel, and mixed media to interpret an inner spirit about a still life or landscape or human figurative subject that is present for a painting. I learn through every painting, every teacher and every friend with whom I share a paint day.
