Art - no matter what kind or media - has been my muse all my life. My brain works in 'artist mode' all my waking hours. God has given us such a beautiful world to live in and beauty can be found anywhere at all. You just have to look. Light, shadow, color, contrast - it's all there. I've been drawing and painting since I was old enough to hold a pencil. Raised my children and painted whenever possible. Now I'm back at it full time. I love plein air painting (on location) as well as studio work. Photography is another hobby that I enjoy and it goes right along with my painting. Oils and acrylics are my favorite media. I hope that you will find something pleasing to your eye here and that you can understand the reasons that I wanted to paint it. I've had many mentors who've encouraged me throughout the years and have studied with several successful and well-known painters. I have shown my paintings in many competitions and exhibits throughout Texas and have patrons who own my work throughout the country. A lot of painting and drawing is just good old hard work, lots of practice, studying and self-instruction. Most important is the DESIRE to create and to foster that bit of God-given urge. Thanks for taking a look at my work!
