Although I’m new to painting, I’m not new to the love of art. Most of my life I’ve considered myself more of a crafter than an artist because I didn’t have the time, space or desire to tackle painting canvases. One day I stumbled upon rock painting and it opened up a new world for me. Rocks were a perfect canvas for me to explore and expand my artistic ability. I overcame my fear of painting by attending many paint night classes and finally decided to go it on my own.
Last year I began my own painted pet portrait business and realized I not only love painting animals but also landscapes. I was very excited to have won the Best Of Show award in 2019 at the SonoMarin fair in Petaluma. I entered 2 landscapes and 2 animals and happened to win first and second place in both categories. My recent trip to Ireland will inspire more landscape and animal paintings, without a doubt.
I’m retired now from a wonderful career as a dental hygienist and am enjoying a life full of painting, playing music, and teaching dancing. Life is beautiful and I hope in some small way, I can add a little beauty to the world.
