From a young age my favorite past time was drawing and painting. I received a BA in Fine Arts from UCLA focusing on painting, printmaking and photography. A few years ago after a career in education, I came to the decision to finally immerse myself back into the art realm. Since then, I have been focusing on watercolor painting and woodcuts. Recently I have been exploring the use of Pastels. I am greatly influenced by my love of the outdoors, wildflowers and gardening. I currently am enjoying the challenge of different ways of depicting light as it plays within a painting. I find joy in painting the various landscapes from my travels and the lovely island where I live. I have been involved through my art in fundraising for children orphaned by AIDS in Zimbabwe through "Project Luminescence".
