I have been creating art as long as I can remember. My mother was an artist and had a great influence on me. I received my Degree in Art and education from Auburn University in 1980. In later years I attended Piedmont Collage where I earned a Masters degree. Up until my retirement in 2018 I owned and managed a ladies clothing boutique for 13 years and taught art in the local school system for 25 years. In 1986 I had a stroke. During my years of recovery I had to relearn many skills and processes. One of those was painting and drawing. My journey as an artist since then has led me through many ups and downs but ultimately God has shown me new directions and discoveries as I continue to develop as an artist. My focus is on painting with acrylics or mixed media. My subjects range from flowers and landscapes to my current fascination with pets and children. I love capturing moments of life that draw the viewer into the world of the subject. My style ranges from slightly painterly to more impressionistic. I have painted several commissions since retiring. If you are interested in a commission please contact me.
