Yucca Valley, CA


Growing up I dreamed of becoming an artist. As with so many people, opportunity didnít present itself until about six years ago. Finally, I have time and opportunity to pursue my passion for painting. I take great pleasure working with watercolors and pastels. I enjoy the challenge of watercolor painting because of it's fluidity and transparency. I work with only 14 colors and have enjoyed learning to mix my colors from 'scratch." I have been fortunate to have won several awards at judges art show. I seem to paint blooms, barns and birds then throw in subjects that fascinate me. I also reproduce my paintings for prints and note cards.

I am a member of Chaparral Artists, Morongo Valley Art Colony, 29 Palms Art Guild, Desert Art Center and Watercolor West.

I was born in Oklahoma. My family moved to California in 1958. ďDoesnít that make me an "almost native?" My husband and I moved to Yucca Valley, CA in 1984.
