My home and my family are important inspirations for my art.  I have been married to my husband Sam for 62 years and together we raised two children and now have three grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.  We moved to Floyd in 1983 and the beauty of the area continues to inspire me.

I started art classes at the age of 43 and my first oil painting, a farm landscape, still hangs in the living room of my home.  I've taken various classes in Maryland and Virginia and still enjoy taking classes.  There is always something new I can learn.  I enjoy all types of media:  oils, acrylic, pencil, watercolor, and even cake icing!  I've done miniature oil paintings for dollhouses and enjoyed painting portraits of animals and people.  I agree with the  quote by Henry Ford... "If you think that you can, or that you can't, you're usually right."
