Biography


I grew up in Dunn, North Carolina.  My interest in art began as a child when I would draw the comic strip characters that I saw in our local newspaper.  In high school I helped with the art work for our year book.  I was graduated from St. Mary's College in Raleigh, North Carolina and married soon after that.  As a young mother of two children I put aside my interest in art and painting.  When my children were in college I again took up my interest in drawing and painting.
 
Now in the eighth decade of my life my interest in painting endures.  I have studied with various teachers and continue to attend workshops regularly.  My primary medium is oil.  My favorite subjects are faces and landscapes.
 
I have lived in various places but I have found a permanent home in Fairhope, Alabama, where I am a member of the Eastern Shore Art Center and the Bay Rivers Art Guild.  In January, 2014, I was accepted as an associate member of Women Painters of the Southeast.
