I fell in love with painting at 8 years old when my grandparents gave me a
paint-by-number set of horse heads on canvas boards.  My first love was horses, but
that was soon replaced by drawing and painting.  I spent 2 semesters in college
studying art, but quickly realized my income potential as an artist upon graduation
from college would not permit me to support myself so I switched to math and
computer science and spent the next 26 years with a career in the AT&T/Bell System.  

During those years my husband and I raised two daughters and with a full-time job,
that left little time to pursue my art.  I did manage to squeeze in a few classes at IUPUI
in watercolor and oil painting classes focused on still lifes.  Since retiring from
Ameritech in the late 90's, I've had the time to begin painting on my own, but was
never quite satisfied with the end results of my paintings.  In 2010 I began studying art
with Magdalena, artist and owner of Magdalena Gallery of Art in Carmel, IN, who has
been a great help in learning composition design and brush work.  Most importantly,
she has taught me the importance of interpreting the subject matter, whether a single
blossom or a Tuscan landscape, using bold color and high contrast to create a
composition that evokes interest and appreciation on the part of the beholder.  As
with many things in life, I'm still learning but thoroughly enjoying the journey!
