I was born near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh where I studied commercial art. Shortly after graduation I married and began my globe hopping career as wife, mother, and sometime artist. I look back on this period as time well spent collecting experiences and impressions of culture and art in other parts of the world.
I enjoy using different mediums but mainly paint with watercolor, acrylic, and oils in a realistic manner. I want to share the beauty and joy this world offers and especially the landscapes of our Blue Ridge mountains.
