What is sadder than work left unfinished ? Work never begun. As a young child I dreamed of becoming an artist. But a little thing called life got in the way for 30 years -marriage, kids, and a job that made money. Then I made the bold move to quit my day job and pursue my two passions : Painting and garden design. From Spring to Fall as a Garden designer I use the earth as my canvas. When winter sets in I use my canvas to capture the joy and beauty of Mother Nature.

I took up the brush at a very early age and have been experimenting ever since. I am self-taught and my style of painting is intuitive. I know how Monet felt when he said " If I hadn't been a gardener first I might never have become an artist. "
