I was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico but have lived full time in Maine for 44 years. I picked up a paint brush for the first time in February 2016. Before that I was trained in Interior Design, and I am an avid photographer. My inspiration comes from my surrounding as I divide my time between Midcoast Maine, Las Cruces, New Mexico and Palm City, Florida. As an avid collector of Spanish Colonial, Mexican antiques and folk art for over 35 years, I find this to be a recurrent them in my paintings. Within my watercolor paintings you will find gardens and flowers, animals, architecture, portraits of people, animals, and folk art. What you find in common are Bold, Bright Colors!
Worldwide traveler, obsessive photographer, delight in capturing special moments with people, plants, animals, insects and locations.
