Tell us about yourself! I am an emerging artist who paints with oil in an impressionist style. I vividly remember the moment in kindergarten, while finger painting, that began my lifelong fascination with paint. I received no formal training in art but earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business from the University of Central Florida. Primarily a self-taught artist, I painted murals, furniture, and explored other mediums before discovering oils. My most admired style of painting, Impressionism, was soon discovered and the pursuit of vivid color, light, and brushwork in my paintings began. Although I have taken some oil painting classes with a semi-private instructor, it is the weekend workshops and online tutorials, that have taught me the methods that allow me to paint alla prima (all in one sitting). My heart skips a beat when I experience brilliant sunshine in nature and in my art. Therefore, it is my personal challenge and compulsion to release the luminosity of transparent color without compromising it before completion. The stories told by blooming gardens, meandering pathways, vast oceans, old buildings and authentic people, captivate me. I like to render these subjects with rich, vivid color and hope viewers of my work will experience joy as a result. I hope others will see and also enjoy my love of color, nature, and travel, as reflected in my paintings. I also do commissioned paintings. My paintings can be reproduced in almost any size. Reproductions of my oil paintings are printed with archival ink on fine archival paper and canvas. All giclee prints are completed under my direction and only with my personal approval. Although a native Floridian, addicted to sunshine, I have lived in Royal Oak, Michigan with my husband and four children for over 30 years. I currently have two granddaughters who live too far away. I like to travel to see them and to foreign countries where I get lots of inspiration for many of my paintings. I look forward to conducting workshops of my own, in my small but delightful garden, where I can share and connect with others. Sharing this love of art and what I have learned continues to delight and surprise me with so many new friendships.
