I am a self-taught artist and I regularly participate in art seminars and classes, and I am a member of a local art association. After retiring, from industry my husband and I began a sailing adventure down the Intercoastal Waterway with stops in many beautiful cities, including Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA. This is where photographs turned into my first works of art using watercolors. New Bern, the surrounding seaside, and countryside communities offer additional opportunities for my creative outlet. Local seascapes, landscapes, flowers, butterflies and birds are my favorite subjects to paint.
I have participated in a number of shows including the Lenoir County Arts Counsel, where I have competed in juried shows, and the Art Walk in New Bern, NC exhibiting at the Arts and Materials Art Store on Middle Street in New Bern. Future shows for 2011 include the Craven County Arts Counsel and the Pamlico County Arts Festival.
