Welcome to my website. I am a painter, so the work you see here is hand painted. Some of the originals are still available, and they are all available as prints. I am attracted to rough, rocky landscapes and old, crumbling buildings, especially those made of rocks, stone, stucco, and other such materials. I paint my home state of Louisiana and the wild landscapes and edifices of the American Southwest. The fanciful side of me likes to create works of imagination, particularly when working with children.
If you know a young person who is interested in art, please encourage that child, and always find something good about the artwork that your child creates. As a young girl, I was convinced that I had no such talent. As a young adult, I figuratively said, 'Wait a minute, I want to paint and I will!' After many years of self-taught painting, I attended college to become an art teacher to children. In spite of having attended college, I still have that self-taught vein, so I have the best of both worlds.
When I look at the beauty and majesty of creation, I know I can never duplicate the work of the ultimate Master, God Himself. But He has put a creative spark into me, and so I create. Come and see my creations. Pick up a few prints and cards. More will be added soon, and then more after that.
