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 and the Gulf Coast Arts Alliance. I am fortunate to be represented by two galleries, All About Art & Custom Framing in Hendersonville, 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.
