Visit South Louisiana in handmade jewelry and watercolor paintings!

I turned to painting, and then jewelry making, as a creative outlet after having my son in 1994 and leaving teaching in '96. Before my health began failing, I entered my paintings in competitive shows, winning several honors.

Self taught in all areas, I have been honored by people requesting my portraits of their beloveds (family members and pets,) both as graphite and watercolor, always from photos. I've even painted "portraits" of family homes, the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and a huge home owned by a friend's friend in Texas.

When my health allows, I paint. Or draw. When I can't paint, I make jewelry. When I cannot do either, I fish!

    I've lived all my life South Louisiana. Left teaching (health issues) and turned to art. I've won several awards for my paintings and sold most by word of mouth. I make jewelry as an alternative to painting when my health prevented me from painting.
