I had always enjoyed doing some form of art during my school days, even into college. While raising my children, I dabbled in photography, and sumi-e brush painting. It has been in the last seven years, though, that have I found my true interests to settle in on watercolor painting and then, Chinese Calligraphy and silk painting. I love color! Many of my paintings show moods and will have an Asian effect.
Professionally, I am a Reading Specialist at an elementary school and in addition to painting, my other past-time is singing in three choruses. Painting allows me to enter another world, where I can dream, relax, and be free. After I retire, I will be able to spend more time doing that!
