I am an original C’ville girl born in 1956 and raised in Albemarle County at Foothill Farm. I ventured to Tucson, Arizona to obtain my Art Education degree K-12 and then returned to the farm to continue teaching until 2011.
From the beginning, my teenage years, I was drawn to watercolors. Art college was great in the sense that I to explore all types of media and yet I am still a watercolorist at heart. The minute I pick up my paint brush I am at total peace with myself. In my youth I listened to music as I painted now I listen to National Public Radio.
Recently I have felt some new energy in wanting to venture out and try acrylics especially for landscape painting. When I paint I get excited and I want to start a new composition without finishing what I am working on. Therefore, I have about ninety half finished watercolor paintings. My goal is to finish all of them before I dabble in acrylics or start a new watercolor.
I am so inspired by the Firnew group. I look forward to growing as an artist with this group.
