In every phase of life, I have been involved with some form of art. Starting in first grade when winning a Milton Bradley nationwide drawing contest out of 70,000 students, which seemed to put me on that path. In college, Interior Design was my major, where I learned perspective using watercolor as a medium. After college I went on to produce watercolor perspectives for clients. As my children were growing up, I began to explore the medium of pen and ink drawing. For 25 years, I drew a wide variety of homes in Richmond, including historic landmarks for realtors and private home owners. Currently, I am a plein air artist and am in my eleventh year of using oils, which I enjoy. I have shown my work in several galleries, including Gallery 606 in Ashland, The Gallery on Merchant Square in Williamsburg, and Gingerbread Square Gallery in Key West Florida.
