My non-representational paintings come from within and are inspired by my life experiences, as well as the colors, shapes, and textures of the southwest. Following a 30 year career in public education my husband and I retired to a beautiful lake in northern Michigan where I was able to spend even more time in my studio. A move to Scottsdale Arizona in 2003 with it’s amazing light, has added a new dimension to my work and my life. Painting for me is a joyful place. I feel renewed each time I create something new and visually exciting.
