When I came to the fork in the road I took it. And I’m sure glad I did. I’m very fortunate to be able to share my love of nature to others in my paintings. I have learned so much more than I ever expected to, in my art classes. That a tree is not just a tree, but a combination of shapes and values. I have made many new friends. I have had to expand my computer skills and marketing techniques. All in all I’m enjoying the journey.
I am lucky to be a Colorado native and am ashamed to admit I so often took it’s beauty for granted. Taking art classes really opened my eyes to see past the obvious.
I am a practicing Dental Hygienist and enjoy the contrast and variables that painting allows me. I have taken classes and workshops from many talented instructors. I am a member of the Pikes Peak Pastel Society.
I enjoy hiking, golfing and taking photographs of Pikes Peak. My husband is my biggest supporter and never tires of me asking if he likes a painting. I have 2 grown children, who have a lot of original art work on their walls.
