Find joy and play every day
With no formal education in art, I am self-challenged and taught. I have been making art all my life although I did not recognize it as such. I was a cosmetologist and educator for over 40 years, including tiny paintings on fingernails which was the nail art of the 80s. Grateful to be growing as an artist since joining the Shenandoah Valley Watercolor Society (SVWS), I now paint with watercolors and have taken up welding/blacksmith and metal working. I am also working on a children’s bird book. My desire to do all the illustrations resulted in many bird paintings. These days I spend much of my time working on a horse farm. Being in nature and bringing nature into my home and onto my walls, gives me calmness and peace. I am reminded to play and find joy every day and it makes me happy to share my art with others. In the future my art will be available at Oasis Fine Art & Craft in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
