Artist Statement
My interest in art was awakened when I signed on with “The Creative Call” class at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church in Fall of 2009. I began painting on canvas with acrylics around Christmas 2009.

I have taken one painting course at Houston Baptist University. My work has appeared in several showings since then. At Palmer Church I painted a huge wall mural (8' x 10') depicting my view of the Garden of Eden.

I paint what I see, but add my own interpretation and color. My hope is to bring joy through bright colors and whimsical renderings of common scenes we tend to take for granted. Trees, sky, fields, buildings all are fair game in my eye.

About
Although a native Texan by birth, I was raised in Memphis, TN. Happily married since, 1971, I've spent over 36 years working in higher education, mostly in financial aid. I love to bicycle, watch the birds and enjoy the outdoors.
