A native of Southern California. Since the age of four I have loved art – drawing, painting, and crafting. All my life I worked in careers that utilized the analytical left brain, so when I retired, I immediately joined the Associated Artists of the Inland Empire to exercise the creative right brain. I have no formal art training. However, I have relished taking art classes in high school and junior college, along with art workshops more recently. Watercolor has always been my favorite medium. Art is a way of really seeing and appreciating God’s creation and the world I live; it is like a silent prayer and is as much a part of me as breathing.
