Welcome to my website! Let me start by telling you a little bit about myself. . .
I have recently entered the world of photography. Photography is something that always interested me but never really took
the time for. Recently I was given an impressive camera that totally intimidated me! After two years of it sitting in it's case, a friend of mine encouraged me to get acquainted
with it and explore the world of photography. I finally listened to him and I am totally enjoying it!
At a very young age, I began my expression of art with pencil drawings. I hung my pictures behind my bedroom door
thinking they were never good enough for others to see.
While in high school in the 70’s, I dabbled in art experimenting with acrylic paint. But, I never took art serious and
moved on with my life, never thinking it was something I should pursue. Then beginning in 1990, I was offered the opportunity to share my passion with others by teaching painting classes
through Adult Education and a community college. But once again, I left art behind and journeyed on with life.
Soon, I began to work with clay and created several sculptures and entered my first art show. I won Honorable Mention
with my self portrait sculpture, “Tae Kwon Do.” I then started working with oils and loved the way I could “plop” the paint on the canvas and move the paint around, never really knowing
what the outcome would be. However, I continued to keep my art work hidden.
Finally, I realized this was a talent that God gave me and it was selfish of me not to share this talent He has graciously given
me. So, stepping out of my comfort zone, I decided I needed to expose myself to the art world and surrounded myself with other artists. And for the first time, I started calling
myself an Artist.
I have been in several shows and am thrilled to have my paintings displayed where the public could finally see
them! I still have trouble calling myself an “artist,” but I am honored to have the opportunity to share my paintings with you.
