In the mid 1980’s I participated in a drawing class in Miami, Fl. That was the beginning of my desire to express my love of design, color, and painting. First venture was in Oil Painting. Mostly landscapes, seascapes and florals.
In 1990 my husband and I moved from Miami sharing time in Stuart (Palm City) Florida, and Bellefontaine, Ohio, his home town. I have become active in the Art Leagues in both areas, taking lessons, attending workshops and exhibiting locally and in art shows A large window size oil of an Everglades scene, a 25×47 oil painting of the Atlanta skyline, children’s murals, private homes, and animals are some of my commission work. Several years ago I expanded into doing watercolors and enjoyed this media very much. I am also experimenting with some pencil drawings. June of 2003 I attended a 5 day workshop in Traverse City, Michigan, given by Roland Roycroft. It was very challenging to learn and experiment with his unusual techniques. Weekly classes in Stuart, both indoors and out have also been great. I have won an award at the Martin County Fair for a seascape watercolor and the winners were recognized at the Martin County
Art Club. Locally there I have taken classes at the Elliott Museum which has a wonderful new facility. In the winter months in Florida I take advantage of classes offered at a new art location called The Nook. I have sold numerous paintings in Ohio and Florida. It is wonderful to have talented artists in both places to learn from. Recently I attended a Frank Webb workshop sponsored by the Logan County Art League . It was very special for me. We are very fortunate to have The Gallery at the Holland theatre to display our art work and hold classes . It’s wonderful to be a pat of and see the progression of the restoration of The Holland Theatre.
