Originally from East Tennessee, I'm very happy that I have recently moved back to beautiful east Tennessee! I've been drawing and painting since childhood. Artistic talent runs in both sides of my family

Both of my grandmothers played an important role in my life. As I have become older, I'm now realizing just how creative they were in their lives. Sometimes it was out of necessity but in my youth that aspect never entered my mind.

Some of my works in permanent collections include those in the University of Tennessee College of Law, Knoxville Museum of Art (predecessor Dulin Gallery of Art), and the Opryland Collection of Tennessee Art which is on display at the Opryland Hotel in Nashville.

The Tennessee Watercolor Society chose one of my paintings for its year-long traveling exhibit, displayed each month at a museum or gallery in cities across Tennessee.

Years of retouching and restoring photographs greatly sharpened my skills in portraiture. One expertise of mine is airbrushing and I have taught airbrush classes.

Before moving back to east Tennessee, my husband and I spent over seven years living in Plano, Texas.
