Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
I am a 60 year old artist. I have had a love of art all my life and have had many artistic endeavors along an incredible, wonderful journey, that is my life. As a young woman I produced concerts for several years. I had the joy of working with top performers mostly in southern California. Cherished memories.

What I love most to do now is painting and photography. My studio has been in chaos from a move and an illness. In the interim I have still been able to paint through a myriad of wonderful programs such as Photoshop, Corel Painter and Pixelmator. I am still learning everyday new things and I hope it is like that for the rest of my life. I think we can never stop learning. I am offering my work for sale here in print and canvas and should have my online gallery up and running soon. My work will be offered here on deviantART almost exclusively.

I have a grown family and a family still growing. I have other businesses that I am working on. My current online business is a joint venture and is just coming into its own. That is Check it out! Lose weight and qualify for fantastic prize drawings! Membership is free.

Breaking out with a really great piece. So happy with it. 6/9

I am creatively challenged, right now. Dang it, just garbage coming forth. 6/6

Yea, I am so happy to report, I am well. I thank those that were concerned and made comment. Seriously the worst flu/pneumonia ever! My kids had it also, one had a temperature of 103.5. I was sick for a month. It is February 1 and all is absolutely wonderful! I have a new sense of wonder in all things bright and beautiful, even little things. I have an enhanced appreciation of my family and friends. May a sense of peace and light shine in all our lives. 2/1/13

Wanted to do "Beautiful Creatures", contest but can hardly make it to my computer, so sick. My iPad broke. So sad but I can see there are a lot of fantastic entries. I would not have had a chance but it would have been fun trying. 1/20

I don't think I have been so sick before except when I was very young and had whooping cough, better known now as pertussis. So sick. 1/12

Went hiking yesterday and my foot hurts so bad. There is a big lump on top. I got some good photo's I will upload. Happy New Year! 01/04/13

I Got A Brush Lover Badge From DevArt!!!!!! Thank You so much! 11/20/12

Just got rain for the first time this winter, it seems.  It is so refreshing!  I love the rain.  I still remember as a child splashing in puddles and spinning around in the rain.  Nothing quite like it except maybe surfing!
