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.

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. In St Petersburg my studio in above in garage and outside on my back porch surrounded by plants, palm trees, flora and birds and my dog Worthy.  In Carrboro my studio is upstairs with nice light from the window. I will be on the Orange County Studio Tour in November so you can visit me and see where I create.

Latest creation is illustrating  a book about Buster A Bischon. 

 

                           Birdland This painting is 5 ft by 6 ft and is a show stopper!  It has a nice home in a lake house. When I paint i think  it is like a dance of color and shapes and often I listen to music to get me in the mood to paint. I love tango music and any latin beat, the blues, jazz, bluegrass and soul.
