I am a native from Colombia-South America. As an adult I had a successful career in computers as an Engineer and worked there in a corporate office in the capital city Bogotá. I found enjoyment and relaxation in the art of painting in oils. It seemed to give me the one thing that my career in computers could not, peace and relaxation.
To build my God given talent in the hopes of one day owning my own gallery and to share with the rest of the world the gifts God bestowed on me. I took classes in different craft schools and with several professional art instructors in order to gain skill and techniques of the art of painting.
Since I moved to Georgia in 2001 and with the help and gratitude to my husband Bill I have the time now and the opportunity to make my dream of becoming a professional artist come true. This gives me the freedom to express myself in a way I never thought possible.
