I grew up in Southern California in the 1960s.
The influences of sunshine and beaches, hippies and movie stars filled my life with color and daydreams.
Finishing school I married my high school boyfriend and off we went on a 30 year adventure in the US Air Force.
Five children and 19 moves later we settled in Oklahoma.
Now with an empty nest I am able to begin my artistic life in a more formal and disciplined way-
Translation ' I got an empty bedroom filled with art supplies to create my daydreams'
These daydreams are represented in the bright colors and textures that I use in most of my work.
Some of my artwork has been shown in galleries in the Oklahoma City area and as far away as New York, Chicago,Toronto and later this year my sketchbook heads to London and Melbourne.
In the future I will be exploring my Native American heritage as a member of the Chickasaw Nation. I hope to incorporate these discoveries into my work.
