Being an artist has always been my dream and each painting I create is a chance to express a vision in my heart. I enjoy painting with watercolors because their transparency can give a feeling of depth, a warm glow and an endless rainbow of color to the finished piece. When painting I combine the best qualities of watercolor with creativity and detail achieving a captivating and authentic illustration.
Some of my favorite images to portray are the landmarks at our local universities and pretty snapshots of nature. Thank you for your interest in my watercolors, it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to paint them.
I studied fine art at Indiana University and earned an Associate Degree in Commercial Art Technology at Indiana Vocational Technical College. I worked as an Art Director, Graphic Designer and as a Freelance Artist while raising our four children. I am a member and past president of the Saint Joe Valley Watercolor Society and a member of Northern Indiana Artists. My watercolor illustration "Campus Sunset" won the Bea Zimmerman Memorial Award, and was recently published in the international book “The Best of Watercolor - Splash 12, Celebrating Artistic Vision.” While my painting “Leeper Park Bridge” won the Hoosier Women Artist Award and was displayed for a year in the Indiana Lieutenant Governor, Sue Ellspermann’s office.
