Born and raised in upstate New York, in a small town of Champlain, just across the border of Quebec and Vermont. I was always inspired by the nature that was plentiful around me, and the fact that my Nana was an artist in her own right and i adored her so!.. My family was always very creative, and was a great influence on me.
I married a military man that gave me an opportunity to travel from New York to Washington State and back across the country to Georgia,and then to California and now Texas, have provided me a chance to explore and truly enjoy the beautiful people, the towns, valleys, country sides, majestic hills and mountains, all of which have left and indelible mark on my memory and in my life.
Today, I find myself basing my paintings on these very places I visited, the families I have met, as well as my own family . My paintings are a set of personal markers in life and in sharing my love for art , life and the creations I have produced, it pleases me greatly to be able to share this work with you for your enjoyment, a meaning and possibly a smile. It is a blessing to have the ability to tickle ones imagination and make thier mind come alive.
Thank you for taking some time to visit my site. I would like to thank Art Wanted for allowing me to share my work here, and all the wonderful artists and those who are just passing through for their time and beautiful comments. Blessings always!
