Acrylics & Watercolor Pencils

I paint what gives me joy, whether it is a special location I’ve
visited or a flower from my garden I’ve photographed.
Working from a photograph helps me make my art as realistic
as I can make it.  I love how colors change in the shade or
bright sunshine.

My parents were both artistic so my love for creativity came naturally.  I can remember many evenings quilting, making puppets, weaving rugs or drawing.  My brother and I used the World Book encyclopedia for reference photos.  You’ll find me painting or drawing most evenings.
