After several years of teaching, I retired in 2013, and I am now excited about being able to devote my time to painting again. Formerly, I have painted murals. In fact, several of my murals are hanging in the school where I taught for over 25 years. I paint in acrylics and I do some watercolors as well, and I focus mostly on landscapes, seascapes and wildlife. I love to spend my time with my family. I have three grown children and five grandchildren. I also volunteer at two nursing homes where I do art projects with the residents. I look forward to working with other artists in the community and improving my artistic expression and techniques.
