A friend made a sign for my art shows: Anti-Depressants Sold Here!

I also love classical music and audible books. While I paint, I like to listen to Bach or opera, as well as listen to a broad spectrum of books. Passionate Readers is the name of my book group.

I believe that all art is rooted in real life. I find inspiration in Home and Garden Themes. And I will continue to explore different decades of women wearing hats!

My paintings are a very personal response to the glory of God reflected in His creations. My love of God's Word and the wonders of His world inform my work.
