My painting career began in 1982. I had always been interested in art and decided
to take a painting class after attending a local art festival. Although I have not had
any formal training ; I have gained knowledge and experience through the
workshops that I have taken, books, videos and simple observation.
I have shown my work at various art festivals in Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Texas,
Colorado, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, Louisiana and galleries in Topeka and Lawrence Kansas.
The majority of my work is watercolor but I also dabble in acrylics. I like to try
different techniques such as watercolor batik, inks, rice paper, pouring and
spattering paint, stamping and whatever comes to mind.
Some of my favorite subjects are landscapes,wildlife, florals, birds, barns, portraits
and some abstracts . I also do commissions.
I live in rural Kansas with my husband and many pets and am inspired by the
countryside and wildlife that surrounds us.
