After a thirty-five year career as an elementary school teacher, it was definitely time for a change. I retired from teaching and immediately began to pursue my new career and my life long dream of being an artist.
having lived near the ocean most of my life, it is only natural that a great portion of my art takes on a nautical theme, but it is by no means limited to that. As you browse through my site, you will quickly learn that I enjoy a wide variety of art forms, design, and crafts.
If you stumble upon a piece of my work that makes you smile, then I will consider that piece a success!
i currently reside in Virginia Beach, VA with my husband Don and two absolutely adorable pugs, Penny and Rocko. They have been a bit easier to raise than my two adult children, Sam and Mary -Austin, who have left the nest.
