ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born and raised in the midwest, I have always been passionate about art!
After a rewarding career as an educator and school counselor, I now happily refer to myself as a full time artist! My oil paintings can be described as impressionistic and painterly in style, and I strive for an interpretive and loose brush stroke. Although I do paint in the studio, I prefer to paint en plein air because nothing compares to the exhilaration and inspiration that occurs when painting from life outdoors.
I feel fortunate to be able to paint with several plein air groups in Southwest Florida as well as Northwest Ohio. I hold memberships in national and regional organizations and enjoy participating in their exhibits and competitions.
