I am self taught, only been watercolor painting since 2008. I started a art class at Braille Institute in La Jolla, and I was scared to death, ,since I only painted as a child in ceramics, and stayed away from any other kind of art till 2008.
I am legally blind since2005, I have barely any color and no depth preception.
I love painting in watercolor and I hope to soon work in acrlic,pastelsand watercoloralso tablet. I want my works to be appreciated, I just want you to watch my progress, cause I will paint till I can no longer see.

Born in Washington 1951, I only painted as a child in ceramics with family members. Never water colored or any other painting til after I became legally blind in 2005. After learning to cope with my disability and going on to Braille Institute in La Jolla, California, I started taking a art class in September 2010.
With every brush stroke I am enjoying it more, and plan to continue for as long as I can.
I must admit there are challenges, since I have lost color perception and depth perception, I find myself asking what colors I am using and hope I can replace the brush on the spot I left when I ran out of paint, lol
Its all about learning and practicing my technique, so I look forward to this new venture in this stage of my life.

Again thanks for looking at my work and hope you will return and keep up with my progress!
