I grew up in Southern California and have always been interested in drawing
I started my long adventure and love of all forms of Art at Sylmar High School
In the San Fernando Valley.
As a single parent raising three children alone in the 60’s & 70’s and working
full time, Art School was beyond my reach.
I have always felt if you love something and wanted it bad enough
you would find a way to achieve your goals.
That’s when I started the long and often times
discouraging process of teaching myself
by reading many how to books, visiting galleries and practicing my
drawing and painting skills, I started to create work that I was proud of.
In 1989 I decided to follow my heart and move to Oregon to be near my family;
and possibly find an appreciation and following for my style of painting.
I became interested in Watercolor in 1995; I found that I loved the fluid look and
detail that I was able to create, and to my surprise I have found that following.
Watercolor has become my medium of choice.
