At the urging of one of my friends, I replaced my 25 year corporate marketing hat in exchange for a paintbrush; and, thus, my painting career began. That was in late 2009. Since then, I have workshop studied with master painter, Ron Hicks at the Scottsdale Artists' School where I learned the concept of "emotive discovery". I was hooked. So much so, that my husband (a potter) and I recently renovated an old building in Morehead City, NC (the southern outer banks) and transformed it into BluSail Gallery, Artists' School & Pottery Studio where we create and teach. In 2012, my "Shed at Gillikin Boat Yard" painting won at the "Art from the Heart" Show covering 5 counties. Wish I could enter more shows, but BluSail keeps us quite busy! There is nothing more exciting than bringing human emotional connectedness to the forefront than through the arts! www.blu-sail.com. firstname.lastname@example.org. 252-723-9516.
