Biography



 
 
As a child and young adult I was a musician, studying flute and piano.  Recently I have become an “empty nester” and have found a creative outlet in painting and have become more passionate about art.  While raising our 3 children my husband and I had the opportunity to live in Holland.  It was there that I took my first painting class in 1992 and spent most of my time painting landscapes. As I raised my children I continued to paint off and on, watching art shows on TV and taking workshops with Jerry Yarnell. In the last few years I have found that I have more time to devote to my art, taking more workshops, studying other artists,( especially the impressionists )and taking private painting lessons. 
 
As I continued to study with Jerry Yarnell I became his first "Certified Artist" in 2014 and after more years of study I became one of Jerry Yarnell's "Certified Instructors".   I am now teaching Jerry's painting techniques to artists all around the country in various 2 day workshops.  For all of Jerry Yarnell's workshops and teaching materials check out his website at  yarnellschool.com.
 
Thanks for checking out my website.  Browse through my gallery of paintings or have your own photo painted as a commission.
Just another note…  I am currently giving 10% of my artwork profits to the Lulwanda Children’s Home in Uganda.  This children’s home houses 110 Ugandan children that are healthy and have been orphaned due to the AIDS epidemic.  It was started in 2004 and now includes a school, farmland and a health clinic.  For more information see
