I was born and raised in Chattanooga, TN.  I have a true love of life and the beauty in everything that surrounds us.  Art is my way of embracing what I see and sharing it with others.

I attempted my first painting in 1991.  Since that time, it has been a wonderful and most rewarding adventure.

I enjoy working with oils, pastels, acrylics, and watercolors.  I’ve enhanced my craft by attending various classes and workshops.  It has been my fortune to have painted with Sandra Washburn, Virginia Skipper, Norma Poulos, Buck Paulson, Dana Jester, Tom Jones, Gary Jenkins and several other wonderful artists.

I have been an active member in the Civic Arts League, Inc. for many years and have often served as its president.  I am also a founding member of an ‘en plein air’ group called, “The Outdoor Girls.”  My favorite subjects usually involve wild life, landscapes, and nature scenes.  I currently have artwork at the Ringgold Art & Frame Gallery in Ringgold, Georgia.

Artist statement:  Like many people, I feel art is the window to the soul.
