Although I did a lot of drawing and some painting growing up, tagging along to my mother’s art classes when I was a kid and attempting a few life drawing classes with my art major roommate while attending the University of Texas, I never took any formal classes until the 1970s. While a flight attendant based out of New York, I lived for awhile in New Fairfield, CT and began taking classes such as photography, life drawing, and acrylic painting at Silvermine Artist Guild in New Canaan, CT.  I continued with art classes after transferring to the Dallas/Fort Worth Area, which is also when I started exploring watercolor. I loved the lightness and transparency of the medium and how it flowed onto the paper. It had an immediacy and fragility I enjoyed and still do today. While in Texas, I studied with Virginia Cobb, Doug Walton, Frank Webb, and Jane E. Jones.
After moving to Pinedale, WY in the 1990s, I took a 20-year break to focus on work and my other passion--horses. Now, with semi-retirement, I’ve been able to carve out more time in my studio. My current focus is on animal/pet portraits but I also enjoy exploring other subjects as well as doing some rice paper collages. Recently, I took a workshop with Sari Staggs. I look forward to taking more workshops and discovering where my art will take me next.
