All forms of art have been a major part of my life. I was a Voice Major at Nyack
Missionary College, sang in church choirs and coffee houses, wrote poetry, and dabble in gardening. Formally, a Reading/Special Education Teacher from New York, I returned to my passion for creating art pieces during my years of retirement. I was mentored by a well-known artist from Wilmington, N.C.
I am a member of JAG, Patio Artist at Balboa Park’s Spanish Art Village in San Diego
and a former volunteer at the Muramid Mural Museum and Art Gallery in Oceanside, Ca.
My works will be displayed in the new JAG Art Gallery in Julian from October-
December. My oil paintings range from seascapes, and sunsets on California beaches,
the landscapes and mountains of Julian and the flowers of Borrego, old missions, as well as, portraits.
My passion and drive for capturing a moment in time is what motivates me to try
different techniques with oil medium, always discovering, always learning and constantly challenging myself.
Art is a lesson in life. It teaches you when to let go, when too much is too much, to step
back and reevaluate the direction you are heading. I find it helps me appreciate the quiet and beauty of nature and just being alive.
