have had a passion for art as long as I can remember. While I was
still in elementary school, my teacher asked me to paint murals on
her classroom walls.
several occasions in early childhood, I was blessed to watch my aunt
– a wonderful professional artist – paint portraits in pastel. I
paint today at her old easel. Other than that long-ago observation, I
an adult, I have had a terrific means of artistic expression through
owning and operating my own interior design business for over 30
years. My husband and I have traveled world-wide and have visited
most of the world’s major art museum and galleries.
is only lately that I have had the time to indulge my passion for
painting portraits. I recognize my talent as a GIFT. The world around
me dissolves, as I become an instrument of this magic. It is one
thing to paint a beautiful portrait, but it is pure joy to paint a
beautiful portrait that is also the exact likeness of my subject.
