Although I have enjoyed making art as long as I can remember, I didn’t have time for it until my children were grown and I was able to retire. I started by taking classes at the Visual Art Center and at Red Hat Studio. I now spend most of my free time painting. I am a member of Sea Grape Gallery, the Visual Art Center, Ft. Myers Alliance for the Arts, the Florida Watercolor Society, the Suncoast Watercolor Society and the International Society of Experimental Artists. I am a past president of the Board of Directors for the Arts and Humanities Council of Charlotte County. I teach a weekly abstract art class at the Cultural Center and at the Visual Art Center. My art has been accepted into many prestigious juried shows including the National Art Show at the Visual Art Center, the International Society of Experimental Artists’ and the Florida Watercolor Society shows. I have also been accepted into the Suncoast Watercolor shows as well as shows at the Von Liebig Art center in Naples. I have won many awards for my work including an Honorable Mention at the Suncoast Watercolor juried show. I’m a signature member of Suncoast Watercolor Society and the International Society of Experimental Artists.
I work in oils, acrylics, mixed media and encaustics. I do representational pieces but my real love is abstract art. I believe it is the most unique, original expression an artist can render. You can see my work at Sea Grape Gallery in Punta Gorda and follow me on Pinterest.
