I am an artist and writer living on the Oregon coast. My passions are gardening, photography, fine art painting, writing and seeking peace in my life. I am retired and now have the time and peace of mind to do my art and writing full time. I am married, have grown children and grandchildren. I have a degree in fine art and have exhibited and sold my art throughout the USA and in Europe. I paint for myself and on commission only now, having given up on the commercial gallery scene. I have had many poems and short stories published and am working on several large writing projets. It is the process of creating that thrills me and gives me a sense of accomplishment.
