I am a self-taught visual artist who loves to paint, it is my passion and brings me great pleasure. I have done a few art events here in Southern California where there are many great artist. I also have a few children stories completed that I will soon share. I do oils, acrylics, watercolors and chalk. I first began my pieces by painting the background on a canvas in a free style. With about three colors. let it dry and then begin to create my paintings. Most, but not all of the time, I really don’t know what I am going to paint it just developes after much thought and change. Depending on how it dries, using differnent colors, and strokes. I just want a vibrate piece that will brighten up any room or any one who looks at my work will enjoy it. I have two young adult children and four grandchildren . Now Evan and Claire are old enough to pick up a paint brush and paint with me. I have been blessed Enjoy!
