I was brought up in a family that loved art. My parents owned and operated a photography studio and art gallery. My father was a studio photographer. My mother was not an artist but she loved art and art history.
At the age of 40, shortly after my father’s passing, I woke up one day and wanted to paint. It was as simple as that. I had never thought about painting before and never took art classes. I went to an art store, spoke with some people there and decided to start my painting using oils.
I put on some music and started to paint. I didn’t know “the rules” and probably still don’t so imagine my shock when my first paintings sold soon after I painted them.
After living in New England most of my life, my husband and I moved to Florida in 1997. I am now happy to call Mount Dora my home town.
I now work mostly in acrylics and have work in many private collections throughout the U.S. and in England.
