Hi there! A little history..........
I grew up in the country, the East Bay Area of California in the 50's and 60's. As a young child my heroes were the masked riders, Zorro and the Lone Ranger. How I loved horses and adventures! I spent a good deal of my time running through fields or with our many treasured pets. But the quiet times were spent doing art.
As a young adult I moved to Puerto Rico, where I majored in art at Universidad Inter-America in San German. I was thrilled with the landscape of Puerto Rico and that became the subject of my acrylic paintings that I later went on to paint.
Later moving to Southern California, my career went in a different direction. After obtaining a teaching degree, I taught Bi-lingual education for a few years, with the opportunity to teach an art class. One more move: Eugene, Oregon, ultimately teaching Spanish as a second language.
Our childhood years usually have an impact on our lives. Today and after retirement, now living in Tennessee and Puerto Rico, I have returned to painting. My subjects always revolve around nature and animals.
In my most current paintings I've allowed myself to laugh, loosen up, and delve a bit into abstract art, just having a good old time during the process.
