Watercolor Oil Sculpture
To write, paint, or sculpt is a lifelong process. It takes courage and tenacity to pour one’s heart out and put it on public view. It is risky but rewarding. I paint because it gives me pleasure and fills me with energy. It balances me. I strive to paint with a fresh eye and open heart. I hope you will receive the same joy from my work as I do creating it.
I studied at the University of Missouri Kansas City and have taught private watercolor and oil classes for 40 years.
