I have always been intrigued by people who write their first novel, run their first marathon, or begin a new career after the age of fifty never imagining I would be one of them. My venture into art began in 2011 when my doodling turned into pencil sketches of faces. I practiced on everyone! Then I experimented with pen and ink. Soon I added a watercolor wash and then tried watercolor on canvas. I discovered a passion for art that was unlike anything I have experienced.

Art allows me to play with shapes and colors, try out new mediums, and experience a freedom I had not previously known as a lifelong musician or career educator. I retired in 2015 and now have all the time I want to play!
