I began my art hobby 35 years ago in oil painting in Atlanta GA. When moving to Florida in 1994, watercolor was the popular medium, so I had to switch. In 2008, I took my first silk coloring/dyeing class, and I was hooked. I was only able to work on my craft during the weekend, as I had a full-time job. In 2020, I retired and moved to North Carolina, now I am able to spend more time doing my silk and also painting in both watercolor and oil paints. I am so inspired by Nature in the Mountains and the changing of the seasons, I am looking forward to bringing these vivid colors that I see into my art.
