“Art and sharing art are my passions. The natural world and the challenge of creating small slices of nature are my inspirations: the play of light on objects, capturing movement and shape, the mood of a moment. The colors of nature and their combinations are a constant inspiration.
Teaching decorative painting has introduced me to many wonderful individuals. Most of our students had no painting experience before starting classes with me and have continued on to become beautiful artists. Our classes are about sharing our love for art and the fellowship that comes from the sharing of a common interest.”
