Biography


I guess it all started as a child...the best I can remember!

As a birthday present, I received a $50 watercolor set, some cheap brushes, and a pad of paper and started my painting journey. Our community fine arts center offered watercolor classes for beginners so I signed up. I watched youtube after youtube and painted everything that caught my eye. I also attended some excellent workshops given by different artists that I admired. I was fortunate to take a workshop from the late Charles Reid and more recently from Ted Nuttall. Ted's workshop is where I attribute much of my success (personal success I must say) as I learned so much about composition and how to embrace the way I painted without becoming "like" anyone else.
 
I am a blueberry farmer, so several months out of the year, my brushes are dry and the studio light is off....but after harvest is when I become fully emersed in what I truly love.
