Hello and welcome to my American Artist site! I'm a forty-something artist and mother of two... I've began taking painting classes in December 2006, and I enjoy working with oils, watercolor, mixed media and acrylic. I've won a few local awards and one national award (in oil painting).
When I can I love to go scuba diving, camping and traveling. I also enjoy photography, creative writing, stimulating conversations and great music. More than anything else I enjoy art, viewing, participating in, studying and sharing ideas! I try to keep pushing myself to get better, try new things (even outside my comfort zone - like acrylic - lol). I feel that we learn and grow and add new aspects to our work when we try new/different mediums.
Please feel free to leave comments on my art pieces... I'd love to hear from you. :)
