I love art. All types of art from many different places and times: drawings, paintings, ceramics, glass, fibers, and architecture.

Growing up in a nomad-like family, I was fortunate to be exposed to a variety of art and architecture. This exposure and inspiration finally led me from creating my personal artwork to art classrooms in Plano and Kerrville, Texas.

After 20 years of teaching, I am returning to creating for myself. Retiring has given me the opportunity to combine my love of traveling with my passion for art. How wonderful it is to be able to capture a moment in time that is so personal.

I would describe my style as delicate and dream-like using an element of abstraction without totally losing the representational. So many amazing and creative people have influenced and supported me in this journey. Just a few are Martha Rae Baker, Marie Renfro, Jane Jones, Ken Hosmer, Gerald Brommer, and Frank Webb.

I am an active member of Southwestern Watercolor Society, Richardson Civic Art Society, and Just-Art as well as a Past President of Plano Art Association.
