A Doverite native. I have always been involved learning some form of craft. I started at a young age doodling and then coloring in the picture I would find in the abstract doodles.

While displaying at craft fairs and shops I was continuously drawn to the watercolor medium.

In 1995 I started my watercolor adventure with Trish Friedman in Dover until she moved to NY State.

Also in the Fall of 1995 I began to pursue formal CLL art courses with Wendy Turner and Dorine Gross’s Introduction to Drawing, Introduction to Watercolor Painting I & II (twice), Art by the Sea; Advanced Watercolor III

I have attended weeklong workshops with Don Andrews, Jan Kilburn in Damariscotta, Maine, & for several years on Monhegan Island with Doris Rice and Jan Kilburn. Recently I have taken watercolor classes thru Sanctuary Arts with Dewitt Hardy a master painter, and with Dustin Knight Tarbell of Portsmouth thru Brush and Palette both have stretched me further as a painter.

I attend classes with Watercolorist Doris Rice of Hampton at the Seacoast Art Association.

I am constantly learning from both my teachers, fellow students and from myself. It a blessing to be a part of these diverse people’s art lives. Wednesdays I paint with a group of people who paint in different mediums, We get together simply to enjoy each others company, critique each other's work and give each other encouragement to keep creating. The highlight of my week is teaching a free beginners watercolor class at the Dover Senior Center. Watching everyone’s works evolve is an awesome experience that cannot be put into words. Each week is such an adventure, their passion is contagious!
