I have been painting for ten years since I retired from my career as an educator. It has become a passionate hobby of mine. Traveling has inspired me to paint and capture the memories of my experiences through the medium of watercolors. I paint nature motifs. Additionally, I have branched out and have been painting with acrylics and mixed media in more abstract formats. So fun! Starting in 2018, I began submitting my art to be in art shows in southern CA and in Portland, OR. It has been my pleasure to sell my pieces knowing they are finding a new home! I am a life long learner and take ongoing classes and workshops from amazing artists to continue to grow as an artist!
