My first recollection of creating art
was when I was preschool age….
laying on the floor in front of the open
front door drawing with crayons on
newspaper  ( I preferred the classified
sections because they had no other
pictures or large print on them to get
in the way).  I had no idea that this
was the beginning of who I was
becoming.  Yes, I have a degree in art
from the University of North Florida
in Jacksonville.  I have worked as a
graphic designer at times and as the
years pass and family finds their own
life to live, I have found more time to
devote to my passion of creating

I worked in watercolor and pen and
ink in the early years but I have
focused on photography and oil
painting in the last three years.  I love
landscapes.  Atmospheric conditions,
light and unusual subject matter have
all inspired my work as of late.  I work
in ‘plein air’ once a week, weather
permitting, and in the studio based on
‘plein air’ studies and photographs.
