My husband and I moved to Ooltewah, Tennessee, in 2010 from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I am a native of New Orleans. After graduation from high school, I began work as a commercial artist for the Yellow Pages. As I raised my family I began painting as a hobby. Because of my husband's job we lived in Texas, Arkansas and back to Louisiana. I studied with many art instructors in all of these states. Of those, Joe Yoder, a well-known Baton Rouge artist, became my mentor. My style and love for watercolor are mostly due to his techniques.
I have won many awards here and in Louisiana. One of my favorites was the purchase of one of my paintings to be hung in the Louisiana State Archives, followed by the selection of another painting used on the cover of the 50th Anniversary Gonzales, Louisiana phone book. I have received many recognitions for my techniques in impressionistic watercolor paintings. I am a member of the Civic Arts League and Tennessee Watercolor Society. I am grateful to these organizations to be able to show my work.
I hope you will enjoy.
