I started painting when I was 9 years old in oils. My parents bought me a paint by number set and an artist was born! Soon I was bursting at the seams and wanted to paint on my own and not by the constraints of the paint by number canvases. At 10 I produced my first original oil painting which turned out to be a Monet style. I was hooked on art and all the pleasure it gave me.
After marriage my art took a back seat to my husband and raising my two little girls. I did however awaken my love of art when my husband, who was in the Air Force, was deployed overseas to Thailand during the Vietnam War. I took oil painting classes with Eleanor Thompson, a retired art professor from Carnegie Mellon University, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Every Monday myself and four other students painted in her basement for four hours and received individual attention. I am thankful for her teaching abilities. The next twenty years were comprised of frequent military moves, ups and downs of life and then during my 30's I went back to college. I retrieved my oil paints and started painting again; but, at that time I was introduced to acrylic paints and my whole style of painting changed from realist to an impressionist. Acrylics dry fast; so, I had to paint quickly and a new impressionistic style emerged. I enjoy painting and evolving through the years. What's next...."Pastels" I can't wait to discover myself again and again through art. Please browse my galleries for a look at eclectic art!
