A self-taught artist and a late bloomer. I began painting as an outlet while attending college, in mid-life. My field of study was demanding and stressful and I needed a creative outlet. I fell in love with the feel of the brush and paint as it flowed on the canvas. I continue to be blessed to study with some awesome gifted artists. The most important roles in my life, wife, mother and grandmother, I was a "early bloomer" but there are many joys in being a late bloomer. God has richly blessed me. I sing His praises through brush strokes and color.
