painting should take the Viewer to a place one cannot go on an ordinary
I did not begin to paint until 6
years ago! I knew that I had a strong sense of design and color from
my youth, but I had spent 25 years as a mother/wife and had not taken time
to develop my skills and turn my talent loose!
I have studied in both England and
the US and have attended many workshops. I have taken ribbons and purchase
awards in several shows and hit the net with my own website in July 1999...
watercolordream.com. I am a member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society,
Tri State Artist Association, Ashland Area Art Gallery, Beckley Art Group
and am represented by half a dozen galleries in the West Virignia and Kentucky
I have been accused of using watercolor
as if it were oil or acrylic. I paint boldly and have no fear of "merging".
My favorite subjects are birds, blooms and butterflies. I enjoy landscapes
but like to make them seasonal and with a clear theme. I am a great
lover of the sea and do some of my best work right on the beach.
Very exhilerating! My plans after teaching as a special education
specialist for the next five years will be to live a the beach as much
of each year as possible. In fact, I hope to visit as many beaches
as possible during the balance of my life.
