I began painting while teaching Theatre Art, Music and Speech in Texas in 1996. All of my canvas work was done on set designs and after retirement from teaching, I decided to put my work on a smaller canvas. I love painting, creating and of course my first love, music. I love the sea and I consider it my muse. I am so honored to have my work here at Gallery of Local Art. I absolutely love this area and its beauty. I live in Palm Coast, Bunnell.
