Everyday I learn something new and wonderful about Art. I am able to capture a thought or inspiration of some image I have felt or seen. The act of trying to put that on paper is what keeps me in the studio. Just the act of creating keeps me looking at the world in a new and fresh way, either in my own backyard or some of the travels I have been able to do in the last few years.
My husband and I moved to the Verde Valle six years ago, having lived in California, Colorado and Florida and two adventurous years living full time in a motor home. I started my artistic career with a workshop at the Sedona Art Center with Bev Kephart. That hooked me! I followed up with classes both at Yavapai College and several workshops sponsored by SAC and the Northern Arizona Watercolor Society. I am slowly finding my own voice and style. In addition to the many classes, I have been encouraged and helped and prodded by my artists friends at NAWS.
I often show work at the Cottonwood Library thru El Valle Artists Association and currently can be seen at Moon Shadow Gallery and Gifts in Old Town Cottonwood.
