Welcome to my website. So glad you found me. Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I was born in Arkansas, raised in Tennessee, lived in Japan and California. I now make my home in Georgia. I have two beautiful daughters, five precious grandchildren and an incredible husband/best friend.
The desire to express myself in a creative way has been a powerful force in my life as far back as I can remember. You know how your mouth waters when you see a double fudge, chocolate sundae, well, just take me into an Art Store or an Art Gallery, my mouth waters, my heart pounds, and my knees get weak. I just can't wait to get hold of a brush and a canvas.
I am self-taught, although I did take as many Art History Classes as my busy child rearing years would allow.
My style and interest are diverse, ranging from Abstract to what I call, a mixture of Modern, Naive Impressionism, in other words I paint what I like, how I like it.
I love playing with texture, especially when it leads me in an unconventional direction. I allow my brush strokes to flow free and uninhibited. I am not interested in painting in a detailed or realistic manner. To paraphrase a quote from Picasso, "I paint objects as I think them not as I see them".
I am forever inspired by the greatest artist of all, thank you Lord Jesus!
