I have always loved to draw but have translated that into a love of oil painting. I strive to capture the viewers interest through color, brushwork and light. I paint what makes me happy and some of those things are animals, people, and still life. I am definitely a work in progress and thank God every day that I get the opportunity to paint. I received a BA in art education and taught art at the high school level for four years before retiring to raise three sons. My sons are officially raised now so I paint most every day. I live in Vestavia Hills, Alabama with my husband Dan.
