“My husband and I moved to Vermilion Township in 1977 to a house that he, a retired firefighter, had built. I had a 40+ year career as a trauma nurse and clinical trial specialist. When I retired, I needed a relaxing hobby.
I began making gold jewelry with Swarovski crystals and vintage beads. I so enjoyed the play of colors and light, I decided to try painting with watercolors and fell in love with this form of artistic expression. It has been 15 years and I still love to paint. Seascapes and animals are my favorite subjects.”
