I’ve always enjoyed being creative,
and I’ve always wanted to be an artist.
Since I didn’t have the confidence to tackle an art career,
I became a school teacher.
As it happens, teaching children
presents innumerable opportunities
to be creative,
and I did that for 32 years…
I absolutely loved it.
But the time came (in 2012)
to follow my dream.
In 2016 I wrote a blog,
about the different kinds of art I had created.
During COVID shutdown in 2020 I painted 30 florals,
held the Summer Art Show 2020 in my yard,
and created an on-line auction to sell them all.
In January 2021 I started
to promote love, learning, tourism, and creativity in my home state,
Wild and Wonderful West Virginia.
Along with puzzle design and promotion,
I’m now learning video production
I still love painting florals and landscapes
and plan to have my next show in March 2022!
I sell my original work (acrylic, watercolor, and pastel paintings)
and reproductions of my work
from this website,
and in gift shops.
