I wanted to be a cowboy riding along side of the Lone Ranger or Zorro. They were my heroes. To have a horse was my dream like many little girls and it became much of the theme of my first works of art. I loved animals. Living in the country our family pets were cats and dogs which have since held wonderful memories. I think, Red, our big red Irish Setter was my first best friend.
Majored in art at the university. Painted landscapes for a while, but I wasn't very confident about my life as an artist. Went on to several different jobs, not directly related to art. My love for animals continued, living with cats, dogs and a few horses.
A few years back I began to paint again. It's been difficult finding myself as an artist. Recently I have been less serious about my art subjects. I want to allow myself to laugh, loosen up a bit, and have a good time during the process.
My love for animals continues.
