About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist, scrapbook designer
Location Michigan, United States
Introduction I am an artist in the Detroit area of Michigan, and I love to paint wherever I travel, especially the Wine Country in Michigan. After getting my MFA from the University of Illinois in printmaking, I fell in love with watercolors and oil paint! I love to paint when I travel and I teach people to do the same in my Paint and Picnic Classes. I paint oil painted portraits on 6" x 6" canvas. I hope you feel the power of the flower and the art of life.
