My first memories are of painting watercolors on the back porch in the summertime with this little tin of paints and some paper. And I remember asking Santa for a Jon Gnagy drawing set. The urge to create has never left me. I finally started taking lessons in my early 20s, culminating in one of my pieces hanging in the Saginaw Art Museum show. Then, suddenly I became a divorced mother and needed to have a steady income. The result was a 25-year hiatus. With a buy-out and an early retirement I could finally achieve my dream—painting watercolors. After a few years of retirement, I was asked to become a gallery owner. I accepted and now after 15 years I co-own a gallery that is known as a cornerstone in the historic arts district. Today I combine my business background with my art dream. I now belong in the art world. My interests are in nature—I love painting flowers and birds. Georgia O’Keefe’s florals are my inspiration. The Treasure Coast offers the perfect location to paint nature in all its splendor. My watercolors are created to let others experience the thrill of living here with the large colorful florals and unique birds that are found along the waters of Florida. As I have continued on this journey, I find that my work has involved into contemporary watercolors. The use of texture with bright, bold colors has freed my creativity into a unique modern new style. I am thrilled to show my watercolors in gallery and shows. My paintings now have an unusual visual feeling created through my use of special papers, new colors and various techniques. Now my watercolors span from the traditional style to a new modern, contemporary style. The Treasure Coast offers the perfect location to paint nature in all its splendor. My watercolors are created to let others experience the thrill of living here with the large colorful florals and unique birds that are found along the waters of Florida.
