Welcome to my art gallery! Thanks for taking the time to stop and look.

I love to paint! Period. Although I won the annual art award my senior year in high school (long, so long ago), "life" got in the way of my pursuing an art career. When I turned 60 I just decided to start; to learn as best I could. I am a member of the "It's never to late to start club".

I work in oils, mostly, and sometimes acrylics or gouache. My choice of subject matter is as broad as are the sizes I paint: animals, florals, still life, oceans, skies…..if it inspires me, I paint

Introduced to the Art of the Miniature several years ago, I have fallen in love with the genre.  The rules are that the art must be no larger than 25 square inches and the subjects must be no larger than 1/6 life size (which is what makes them different than simply small paintings).  They are judged for detail, composition, and must pass muster under a magnifying glass!  In fact, one needs a magnifying glass to paint them.  This year I was happy to receive two 3rd place ribbons, one in the Miniature Art Society of Florida Annual Show and one in the MPSGS Annual Show. 

Pet portrait commissions as well as personalized commissions of other subjects make up a good portion of my studio time, as well as painting for six or seven art shows every year.   

I have been juried into membership in the following organizations:

Oil Painters of America 

MPSGS - Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers Society of DC

IGOR - International Guild of Realism

I also maintain memberships with The Miniature Art Association of Florida, the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society and my local Montgomery Art Association.
