About the Artist

I am a retired art teacher. I work from my home which is on the small farm I grew up on. I graduated from Lone Oak High School and attended Murray State University where I graduated with a BFA in Art Education. My husband and I married after graduation and moved to his hometown in Florida where we both were employed by the school board in Baker County. My entire teaching career (35 years) was at BCHS. A few years after we retired we decided to move back to the farm here in Ky.

About the Work

Most of my recent work has been painting. I mostly use acrylic and watercolor for my media. Subject matter is usually the things I find around me in nature like the flowers around my house and the wildlife in the area. I enjoy bright colors and cropped compositions, however I don’t limit myself to these. I will paint whatever interests me.
