I was employed as an art teacher for 30 years, during which time I concentrated on watercolors doing summer art fairs for 10 years. I retired early at 53 so I could learn to paint in oils. After several years of practicing I reached a level for gallery acceptance. I was represented by the Mercury Head Gallery in Grand Rapids, MI, the Lansing Gallery and Art Reach in Mt. Pleasant, MI.
Plein Aire painting became one of my favorite activities. After a couple of workshops I joined the group, Great Lakes Plein Air Painters where we would go as a group to different locations to paint.
Now I live in southwest Tennessee and am setting up a new studio and have a business, Green Leaf Arts. I love creating art in many forms including painting, pottery and sculpture.
I live to create art and art is my life.
