I have lived in Western North Carolina from birth. I enjoyed art at a very early age. I have been mostly self taught with a little help from my first art teacher, Mrs. Vinning . She taught art at a private school and gave private art lessons at her home in the evenings. I was lucky she found a little talent in me and took me on. I took art with her about two years.
Then later in life, around 30 years of age, I went to UNCA and took art, writing and anything else that I thought would enhance my art. I studied there about a year.
I worked full time in the summer camps of Camp Rockmont and Camp Merimac as their office person. And later as I got older I took a job with Tyson Furniture. I worked as Office Manager for more than 10 years. I retired from there at age 67 and picked back up my art. I am now painting to make up for lost time. I am so happy with my days now. I paint anytime I want without having a job interferring. It's wonderful.
I am selling some of my paintings. I am running out of space, and my husband is insisting that I thin them down!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed painting them..
I am a member of Swannanoa Valley Fine Art League and the Red House Gallery where I have a Studio. Pleas come and visit me.
