I am basically a self-taught artist and have been drawing and painting all my life. I have 12 fabulous grandchildren and a wonderful husband. Second to God, family is everything to me. I love to draw and paint animals but I do almost all subjects as well. Gouache which is opaque watercolor is by far my medium of choice. I love its versatility and how it can be used in the same manner as oils or watercolors. I live in rural central Pennsylvania at the base of the Appalachian Mountains. It is so peaceful and serene here that I believe God has given me a glimpse of Heaven-on-earth. I grew up in the country around horses and had my own horse when I was a teen. As a result, they are probably my favorite subjects to draw and paint. I do paint almost anything though. I sell mostly prints here on but there are several originals available too.
