I was born to do art. As soon as I could hold a crayon I have drawn. Cardboard boxes were my canvas. I drew all the time then and still do. Then my father gave me a refillable felt pen with different tips and colored inks. I went from there creating art. Then, when I was 16, our neighbor, Homer, who was a water color artist, got me and my brother George into his studio and introduced us to water color. Now that opened a whole new world to express my art. I have no real formal training, pretty much self taught. I feel that have been given me freedom to explore it all. I draw and paint in assorted ways with different mediums all the time. It’s my joy in life, sharing creations and talents, such a joy.
