My interest in art began at an early age when my grandmother, who noticed I liked to draw, enrolled me in private art lessons at the age of 10. I continued to draw and paint throughout my childhood and teen years. I then obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Education and taught art in both North and South Carolina public schools.
My artwork took a back seat during the years I was raising my children, although I did manage to produce a few paintings and pastels for family and friends. During those years, I dreamed of being able to have a studio in my home and paint full time. That dream has come true as I am now enjoying my studio overlooking the marsh, where I continue to appreciate and be inspired by the natural beauty of BHI.
