I spent several days in Venice, Italy this summer. I had to come home and paint a whole series. I have many of Venice, Tuscany, Rome, and Positano. The colors and light are just amazing in the summer there.
I was raised an Army brat and traveled around a lot in my early years. I was always interested in Art and tossed the idea out to my parents as a college major and they said you need to major in something that can get you a job. So I majored in International Business primarily because learning languages came easily to me and French went along with the business classes. I didn’t revisit the art/painting idea again until my youngest child began school full-time and that's when I began to take classes in drawing and painting. A decade later my passion has taken me to the place where I want to share my work and here I am selling my work in on-line stores and galleries. I primarily enjoy painting landscapes in oil and acrylics. My favorite subjects are rolling hills, trees, water, and skies. I especially like to paint landscapes from places I have traveled both from photographs and ''plein air''. My interests lay in the nature found around me using color and light. But in the past few years I have begun to branch out into city scapes, still lifes, and animals. My work has been exhibited in numerous locations around the Mid-Atlantic Region. I live in Arlington, Virginia with my husband and two children. I continue to study painting under the direction of other local artists and teachers and am a member of the Arlington Artist Alliance, the Art League of Alexandria, and the Rehoboth Beach Art League.
