Being an artist and photographer has been a lifetime dream of mine. I have enjoyed working in many different mediums including graphite, colored pencil, pastels, oil paints and watercolor and in different genres. After graduating college with an Associate Degree in Advertising Design and Commercial Art I continued my studies in fine arts for 8 years under a renowned wildlife artist in oil painting and then another 10 years studying under an accomplished artist/author in the area of portrait and wildlife in graphite, colored pencil and pastel. Education and practice always challenge me to be a better artist and person.
Photography of children and families, wildlife and all creation stir in me a creative side and many times the image is turned into a drawing. Again I continue to study and learn to become a better photographer.
Life wouldn’t be complete without my husband of almost 40 years, 2 sons and their wives and 5 grandchildren. They are my inspiration and encouragement to become better.
I hope you enjoy the work and find moments of reflection not only in the artwork but in your daily life as you encounter God’s beauty in all of his creation.
