It wasn't until I retired in 2011 as a school administrator in northern Virginia and relocated to Tubac, AZ with my husband, was I able to focus on my burning desire to paint. It was an instant love affair with the gorgeous light, the rugged beauty of the terrain, the breathless sunsets and of course, the diverse culture and history of the area which caused us to settle in southern Arizona. Within me was the constant desire to paint, to interact with this beauty; to capture it's strength and energy, to express my emotions. I have no choice, I must do this thing called painting and capture the light. In my search, oil became the medium that could best express my emotions - the pushing and pulling of paint across the canvas, the richness of the oil and the energy and excitement I could capture with this medium.

I have had little formal training in the arts, and my degrees are all in school administration. But, I have been extremely fortunate to study seriously in very small groups and semi-private lessons with several well know artists including Lou Maestas and David Simons as my primary mentors and teachers, as well as, the very talented Nancy Boren, Walter Porter, Phil Starke and most recently, Michelle Dunaway. I am an associate member of AWA, American Women Artists, Portrait Society of America and Oil Painters of America.

My art is on display at the Tubac Center for the Arts. Beginning September 11, I will have an exhibit at Hilltop Gallery in Nogales, AZ for a month, with one other local artist.
