Born and raised in Concord, North Carolina, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. In 1975, I moved to Florida and taught Art in Dade County and later in Brevard County. Retiring in 2010, after 32 years of teaching, I set up my ceramic studio and created life sized, female busts, mini sculptures, clay masks with a sea shore influence, wall sculptures and functional pottery. Arthritis forced me to sell my clay equipment and embark upon my painting career in 2014. I love the shore and presently paint seascapes and beach related subjects in my studio in Palm Bay, FL. Creating backgrounds...oceans and clouds with gestural splashing, sponging and masking are my specialty.
Look for Shore Paintings at festivals in coastal Georgia and Florida. The show schedule is below.
