My paintings reflect the energy and spirit of life. I strive to capture the feelings of joy that only being fully alive and present to the beauty around us can bring. For most of my adult life, I’ve lived with a chronic autoimmune disease called lupus. While painting, thoughts of illness and pain melt away and I am transported to a place of connection with all that makes life worth living.
As a native Floridian, I find endless inspiration in the natural beauty of the Gulf Coast. Although I dabbled in painting early in life, it was not until my retirement from education that my passion for painting blossomed. I have studied with many artists and know there is always more to learn. When I take a break from painting, you will find me speaking to groups of people who live with chronic illnesses. My passion is making life just a little easier and a little more beautiful for those around me.
