Capturing nature and the joy and excitement, peace or mystery, or any emotions it can instill in us as humans, has long been my passion.
I first fell in love with photography and then I started painting at age 36. I was always drawn to my creative side even though my sensible side guided me into a business degree. While working for several corporations I was always hearing the creative side of me yearning for a different experience. Over the years I have been very grateful for being able to grow up in rural Arkansas and later to live in Southern California. Both experiences offered so much natural beauty in the landscape. Easy access to so many excellent museums and galleries continue to expose me to more and more superior artwork.
By studying under several excellent artists in both classes and through various art clubs, I found that I really loved learning about the variety of styles and techniques of each one.
Art is everywhere and I cannot get enough of it.
