My heart goes out to the wonderful people that are trying to beat this dreadful disease. My Mother died from breast cancer leaving behind us three small children. I was only seven at the time. My sister is a breast cancer surviver, thank heavens.

Bio
I love to paint the objects that we see in everyday life. I have enjoyed putting in unexpected things in the paintings. These objects have a gleeful whimsical, dancing feeling to them. I am trying some new subjects as I write this, things that I also love, like the sandy beach with and dunes and sea grass. Think I will forgo the whimsical aspect for a while and see how they turn out. I have a BA in Fine Arts and have studied almost every form of painting in many places, finally settled on oil painting.
