I was born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, and after a long career teaching in the Cleveland, Ohio area, have finally settled in Nashville, Tennessee. As a child, I often spent some of my free time sketching, but never had any formal art instruction. After college, I pursued a career teaching mathematics and spent many happy years teaching and raising my family. While I never had much free time, I dabbled in some different forms of painting classes when I could. Now retired, I have the time to spend on what I've realized is my true passion - realistic watercolor painting. I've been experimenting with adding gouache paint lately.
It's a dream to be continuing my formal art education in the classroom and through self-study. I am a member of the Tennessee Watercolor Society, the Watercolor Society of Alabama and the Gulf Coast Arts Alliance. I am fortunate to be represented by THREE galleries, All About Art & Custom Framing in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Picture This in Hermitage, Tennessee and the GCAA gallery in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Please enjoy viewing the art you see here, and reach out with any questions or comments - I would love to hear from you!
My happy place....the beach.
