I am a relative newcomer to painting, only taking up this “hobby” seven years ago. I had tried some painting during my early teens, taking lessons in tandem with my mother, but my working years were all that… all work and no time for art. When I retired to North Carolina in 2015, I took an acrylic painting workshop sponsored by Stepping Up for Arts, and as they say the rest is history.
I joined the St. James Artisans to handle publicity, and the next thing I know I was becoming a contributing member. I was hooked and after using only my right brain for over 30 years, I was excited to expand any creativity I had been storing up.
I’ve learned through workshops, classes and private lessons at Brunswick Community College, Cameron Museum School, Leland Cultural Center for the Arts, and with Joseph Bardani. I love painting both landscapes and still life, and work in both realistic and abstract style with a focus on impressionist landscapes and seascapes.
Besides being a member of the ARTISANS ON HOWE, I am a member of the Bardani Studio in Southport, painting and learning from the other fine artists there.
If you are interested in my work in acrylics and oils and also some drawing, you can contact me at email@example.com.
