I was born in Charleston, South Carolina and graduated from Florida Southern College in 1980 with a Bachelor of Art Degree. I married my high school sweetheart, a navy pilot, and had an adventurous life living in California, Hawaii, Texas and Florida.
In 1990 my family settled in Orange Park, Florida. I became an active member of The Florida Watercolor Society, The Jacksonville Watercolor Society, The St. Augustine Art Association, The Clay County Art Enrichment program for children, and The Art Guild of Orange Park (www.artguildoforangepark.com) where I served as president for two years and for whom I am currently publicity chairman.
My paintings range from floral, tropical scenes and landscapes to still life and portraiture. I truly love it all! The more I paint, the bolder I become with my color, design and composition.
