About me

I began painting late in life and have continued this journey, learning many ways to paint and to create what is in my imagination. After a career in Nursing and retiring from Duke Medical Center, I began painting full-time. I have created many works of art and have been fortunate to have people who appreciate what I do.

In this painting I used mixed media to make the dresses. Shapes dominate to make the work interesting.

How I Paint 

Painting for me is a creative process, most often I paint "out of my head" putting on canvas or paper whatever comes to me. I like using mixed media , putting different painting mediums in my work to create bold textures. I also like to work very simply with watercolors.
