About me

Introduction Drawing & painting have been part of my life forever. My first art memory was dreadful. Given finger paints & specific instructions about what to draw, I became taken with how my fingers made wonderful designs on the paper. I forgot the instructions & when it was my turn to show my work, it was torn up, as an example of not following instruction. The designs I produced were beautiful! That experience is the hallmark of my life & I have “not followed instruction” ever since. I started college in Seattle as an art major, but quit to work. This detour & others lasted for years. I finally graduated with a degree in business. When my hubby & I moved back to Dallas, we found a home with a studio attached. The realtor informed me that we could probably use it for a workshop. I began to dig out old supplies & purchase new. The first paintings were pretty dismal but the feeling was euphoric. The rest is history. I love the interplay of light and dark, bright colors.
