"A professional artist since 1964, I attended Harris Institute of Art in Nashville and later went on to study at the Atlanta College of Art. I have studied under such renowned artists as Joseph Perrin (Atlanta, Georgia) and Wolf Kahn (Sebasco, Maine), and have been teaching various art forms to other artists and students since 1970. I have held many leadership positions in the art community such as the Vice President, local chapter of the National Women’s Caucus for the Arts: President, Petticoat Painters; President, Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society; and Area Chairman, Florida Artist Group, Inc. and won numerous awards for my art, including the prestigious Fonchen Lord Memorial Award, Jacksonville Museum of Contemporary Art, juried by David Levy, Director of the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C."
"My teaching experience includes teaching pottery, book making, mono types, and painting (watercolors and acrylics), having taught such groups as teachers, other professional artists, and the general public. Some of my teaching experience includes teaching continuing education classes at Oglethorpe University (Atlanta, Georgia); teaching recertification classes at Holy Innocence Episcopal School (Atlanta, Georgia); and teaching at a retreat for the Women’s Contemporary Artists (Ellenton, Florida). I have also juried numerous art exhibits throughout Florida."
"My paintings are exhibited in corporate and private collections in Georgia, Florida, New York, Hawaii, Maine, Switzerland, and Venezuela. I currently exhibit in my Main Street Studio located in the heart of the art district in Sarasota, Florida."
