I enjoy creating beautiful works of art using watercolor, oil, acrylic, and pastels.  Like many artists, my interest in painting began as a young girl using crayons and watercolors. I was born in Richmond, Va and lived my early life on a farm with a large family in Hanover.  As an adult I took classes in art at American University during the summers off from teaching math in Fairfax County.
Once retired, I enrolled  in the many local art classes available in the Northern Virginia area thru Arlington Adult Ed, The Art League, NVCC, and other art programs and workshops.  I became a member of the McLean Art Society, the Arlington Artists Alliance, and Potomac Valley Watercolorist.
I enjoy the challenge of painting landscapes, flowers, and abstracts. I have been juried into many art shows in the local area and my works hang in may locations in Northern Virginia . I continue to enjoy the challenging field of art.
