I have spent many years painting part-time, mainly doing portrait commissions, while also working as a Financial Aid Counselor at a local community college. While I LOVE portraits and portrait commissions, I yearned for more time at the easel to stretch myself creatively in other directions as well.
I am thrilled to now be fruitfully painting full-time every day! This was one of the sliver linings of the past several sheltered years. I began working from home like many people, which allowed me to paint and study more through the many on-line events and offerings that became available. Eventually I felt it was time to leave my "day" job to be able to finally pursue painting full-time! What a gift and such a joy!
I have been immersing myself in the last days of summer by painting seascapes. I am so happy to share my painting journey going forth! Thank you for visiting!
