A little about me...
Born in Ohio, my family moved frequently and I was always the new kid on the block. I was drawn to the world of the artist, I loved drawing, doodling, and creating crafts. I met my first artist, my friend’s dad in Memphis, and he showed me how to draw a tree that wasn’t a lollipop. From that moment on I never saw anything in nature without imaging how I would draw it or paint it. I would look at how God threw splashes of colors to create the autumn trees; the purples, turquoise and oranges a sunset; the unending shapes that form clouds; the precious animations of my grandchildren; the regalness of the egret or sassiness of the gull or . . . How could I not be inspired when everywhere I turn around is God’s magnificent creation to behold.
As a child, I wanted to be a teacher, so I did take a few art classes in undergrad school. At my last school, Oakland Center in Georgia, I painted a mural on the atrium walls and have completed several commissioned pieces. I have painted in oils and acrylics but after taking water color classes with Terry Denson, I was reeled into the amazing world of water color.
I can’t explain to you how excited I get when I see watercolor dancing around the paper and am so amazed at the creation it produces. I can’t wait to try the next piece just to see what happens. I delight in the vibrancy of color, the flowing movement of colors into each other, and the transparency of one color over another. I enjoy using traditional techniques and am sure as I mature as an artist, I will embrace modern ideas as well, but no matter, I love the season I am in and the seasons of growth that lie ahead as a watercolor artist. I have received several awards at art shows.
