Thank you for viewing my art. I love paint and color -- I always have, from as early as I can remember. When I was very little, I loved all things red. I had red cowgirl boots, and I so badly wanted the pair of red shoes worn by a mouse in my story book. When I got to kindergarten and tried finger paints, I was hooked! I remember the smell and feel of those first finger paints -- I couldn't wait to get my hands in them.

I grew up in Burbank, California, but I've lived in lived in Mesa, Arizona for the past 29 years. My journey with painting began in decorative art and watercolor during the 1970s; and for the past 25 years I've painted in oil as well.

Retired from a banking career 12 years ago, I now paint almost every day. My art education has been self-directed, and I've been fortunate to study at the renowned Scottsdale Artist's School under several professional artists: Joni Falk, Dick Heichberger, Hedi Moran, Julie Gilbert Pollard and Kim Johnson-Nechtman.
