Coming soon...I painted a cardinal when I was in the first grade and got praised for it. From that time on I wanted to be an artist. I took all the art electives available in high school and enrolled in art school when I moved to Maryland but dropped out when I bought a car and started dating. Later marriage and church work took precedence. When my kids went to college I found time to begin watercolor classes and in the 1990's I enrolled with the Dorothy Redding School of Fine Art in Columbia, MD. I really enjoy doing landscapes and animal portraits . I like rich intense color and balanced design compositions and a mood of peacefulness.
