my water media (watercolors, pastels and acrylics) and my oils in my
beautiful Art Barn in North Carolina.

on Yupo paper allows my creative muses much freedom while bringing great
success in national show entries.

in Watercolor Magic and been on the cover of several magazines. My paintings
hang in homes throughout the country and in England (where I lived on
two separate occasions) and it always delights me to see people enjoying
