I started painting in the late 1960s after the birth of my first child. I drew all the time as a child but didn’t know I was interested in art, so I never took any art classes in school. So, I am mostly self taught. I have shown paintings in California and in Washington. I have paintings in Arkansas, Nevada as well as California that were done for people. I find art in my life, it is in everything I do. It is my way of life and what makes life meaningful.
I also love taking pictures. Grandkids are perfect models. I also like to take photos that are just pretty scenes perhaps to use as painting inspirations. I have a published photograph titled “Two of A Kind” that is in a coffee table book titled “Shades of Tomorrow.” I have also exhibited several photos in art shows in Washington. I hope my love for the subject shines through the pictures I take.
