After enjoying many varied careers ranging from healthcare administration and nursing to antiques dealing and interior design, I followed my natural creativity to write a novel, Seeking the White Root, An Australian Story, and gradually to the realization that I am an artist. Starting to paint was a new artistic endeavor for me  and is quite challenging.  My passion for collecting art and antiques and decorating houses  has honed my ability to see vignettes or scenes that “need to be painted”.  These exciting vignettes seem to appear before me as I am hiking and camping in the desert, mountains and forests around the country,   I also enjoy bringing my PleinAir paintings back to  my Gallery and Studio in Tubac, Arizona to create larger paintings with more depth of color and light. My hope is that my paintings speaks to the heart of the viewer creating joy.
