I have been painting for over 25 years professionally. My work has been purchased world-wide and I have many happy collectors. As with many artists, painting is a passion for me. Sometimes I'd rather paint than eat (well, maybe an exaggeration, but sometimes I do forget to grab lunch). I studied art in college and went on to have a career in business, then as a flight attendant and later working for the Xerox Corp. as a Customer Representative. During this time I kept painting and sketching. My very early work was in oil, but then I switched to watercolor and worked with it for many years. A few years ago I went back to oils and have been loving it!! My real passion is painting en plein aire (in other words painting on location). I found that painting in oils on location was much more fun than painting in watercolor (for me). You notice I qualified that as not everyone feels that way.
I live on a mini horse ranch in So. Calif. Only one horse left and he belongs to a friend, but lives 'with us'. Long ago I was strictly an equestrian artist, but at the present time my favorites to paint are flowers, land and seascapes, and architecture. It's a wonderful life! (That sounds familiar.)
