Originally from South Texas, I had a 15 year career In the hotel industry, where I met my husband.  The first 20 years of our marriage we lived in the three states in the U.S., three Caribbean islands, Bermuda, Moscow, and London, UK.. Unfortunately, due to work permit restrictions I was not allowed to work in the majority of these countries so my rewards came from working with charitable groups and fundraising to assist local people in need.

Having worked in mixed media I appreciate the adaptability it offers from the ability to add texture that captures the intensity and power of a crashing wave to providing the softness of a calm atmospheric mist in an early morning forest or the glow of a beautiful sunset at the end of a day. 
Art is about a lifetime of continuous learning and experimenting. [...]
