I have always had a passion for watercolor and finally started taking classes just a few years ago in both watercolor and oils. After starting the classes I was hooked. I do have a love for flowers and nature and try to capture that in my paintings. I am also a member of the League of Roanoke Artists, Artists on the Loose group, and Art Visions Gallery which is located in Burnt Chimney, Va. I have always lived in Virginia and for the last ten years in Smith Mountain Lake area after my husband and I retired. He started playing more golf and I started painting.
