I became serious about drawing and painting about 25 years ago. I took many adult education classes to develop my skills, but wanted to learn more. In 2012 I received an Associates in Fine Arts Degree, and I am a Silver Signature Member of the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. I have received many awards for my watercolors and drawings. My favorite award was given by the Watercolor Society of North Carolina. It was the M. Graham & Co. award wherein I received $400 worth of paints!
I mainly paint in watercolors and do commission work painting people, pets and homes. Dogs are my specialty. Our canine friends speak to us through their eyes, and facial expressions. I try to capture that emotion through the magic of watercolor. I teach drawing, watercolor painting and acrylic pouring in my home studio in Briar Chapel, and I love sharing my passion with children and adults alike.
