Biography


I came from a family of art lovers. my mother and grandmother were portrait painters and my father took me to some of the best museums in the US and Europe.

She opened a neighborhood children's art studio in our back yard when I was quite young and there I learned the basics of painting. 
 
My husband Skeeter and I live on Mobile Bay where we raised most of our six children. We have ten grandchildren and expect many more.
 
  I have been painting portraits on commission for many years and recently have discovered the joy of "plein air" painting. Now that we're empty nesters I have more time to paint and have never enjoyed it more.
