Since high school, art has always been a passion for me – the smell of the paint, the texture of smooth and grainy clay between my fingers, the sight of colors mixing and blending with each other was the creative magic that art was made of. Life took me in many directions and locations enabling me to enjoy different cultures and flavors across the US as well as Europe. Along the way, I integrated art into my life in many forms. As an entrepreneur, I began a successful “Children’s Art Parties” business and developed and taught a children’s art program at the Monongahlia Art Center in Morgantown, WV. I have earned a Bachelor’s degree and an Art Certificate from Immaculata University in Malvern, PA. I am a member of the Society of Bluffton Artists (SoBA) in Bluffton, the Art League on Hilton Head Island, and the All About Art Club in Sun City. After retiring to Bluffton, SC from Marlborough, MA nearly eight years ago, I continue to paint in my favorite mediums –Acrylic, Pastel, and Watercolor. Create and Paint On!
