I HAD ALWAYS LOVED BEAUTIFUL THINGS ; BEAUTIFUL SPRING FLOWERS , LITTLE WHITE CHURCHES . I GREW UP IN MANSFIELD , LOUISIANA WHERE THE SKY WAS BRILLANTLY BLUE , TREES WERE TALL AND LEAVES BLEW SOFTLY IN THE WIND IN DIFFERENT HUES. MY HOBBY WAS READING , AND SEWING. ALWAYS A LONER ,WITH FOUR SIBLING , I WALKED ALONG DUSTY ROADS PAST OLD HOUSES WITH OLD MEN AND WOMEN SITTING ON PORCHES . LAUGHING AND TALKING AFTER A HARD DAY AT WORK. I REMEMBER WASHING CLOTHES IN A TUB ,RUNNING THRU SHEETS BLOWING ON AN OUTSIDE LINE. LOVING ART I SOLD PRINTS A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. FELL IN LOVE WITH ART. MY HEART SUNG AT THE BEAUTY AND SOUL OF PAINTING. I DECIDED ONE DAY AFTER READING OF CLEMEMINE HUNTER TO TRY . BROUGHT OVERCOUNTER PAINT AND POSTER BOARD. I PAINTED A PICTURE AND MY LOVE AFFAIR BEGAN.STARTED WITH CHURCHES AND OLD HOUSES. MY GREAT NEPHEW 7 OR 8 AT THE TIME KEPT ASKING ME TO PAINT A HORSE , A TREE WITH AN ANIMAL IN IT ; PEOPLE GOING TO CHURCH AND OF COURSE ONE WITH HIS GRANDPARENTS SITTING ON A PORCH. EXPLAINED I COULD NOT DO PEOPLE JUST CABINS. HE SAID' YOU WON'T KNOW UNTIL YOU TRY IT ' I DID . HAVE BEEN PART OF ARTPORT AT SHREVEPORT AIRPORT , ART SHOW AT SHREVEPORT ARTS COUNCIL AND SHOWINGS AT LIBRARIES AND DIFFERENT CHURCHES.. SOLD SOME TO CO-WORKERS AND MOST TIMES GAVE THEM TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

I HAVE BEEN A NURSE FOR OVER FOURTY YEARS , STILL WORK PART TIME. LOVE IT TO THE POINT OF WORKING AS LONG AS I AM ABLE. OH, BUT PAINTING IS MY PASSION. HOPE YOU LOVE MY WORK AS MUCH AS I ENJOY PAINTING. I HAVE SO MANY STARTED AND SOME COMPLETED , HOPE TO ADD TO MY WEBSITE SOON.
