I am a self-taught artist who started painting almost thirty years ago when my youngest left for college. This filled the void of being an empty nester and opened a whole new path for self-expression. This new passion is taking me to places beyond expectations. I approach my work as a journey, both into the subconscious of the mind and soul of the painting. My art has taught me who I am and now I work toward where I am going. Finding my way into the canvas is only half the journey, finding my way out completes the intimacy I hope to share with the viewer. I have been fortunate to have had many solo exhibitions.
