After my career in Dental Hygiene and 18 Years of Cattle Ranching; my Watercolor Adventure began. Since my degree was in science—my art education comes from Workshops at Scottsdale Artist’s School. From respected artists in watercolor and drawing. Seminars on Art History. Books, DVD’s and online learning opportunities as technology evolves.

Years on the ranch helped me develop my love of the land and all of God’s creatures. My artwork subjects drawn from my experiences with the cattle, sense of being grounded to the land and trusting in God when things are difficult.

Time outdoors is important to me thus Plein Air Painting has become a regular endeavor.  Painting on site offers so much more than just working from photos. I feel that emotion and energy are reflected into my paintings.

Rewarding—sums up my experiences. Looking forward to all the future holds.
