After a successful business career I started my Art career.

 I spent most of my adult life as an entrepreneur creating and growing successful businesses. After my husband and I sold our last business, I started my Art career. I took classes in watercolor and acrylic. I took workshops with local and national artists. I devoured books on technique and sat for hours in my home studio practicing what I’d learned. I still do. Being an artist is a journey. My hope is for the joy I feel in the process of painting to come through in the painting. So that when someone looks at my art, they too will feel JOY!!
