“Every morning I am fortunate to wake up to the beauty of the coastal marshlands of the Golden Isles of Georgia. Seeing it through the eyes of a painter makes it even more beautiful…..more spiritual”.

Having worked artistically as an Interior Designer for over forty years, I

always had this thought that I could and should paint. I finally made the

time to pursue this dream in 2002.

I grew up in Chicago, left home to attend Purdue University and ended up

moving to St. Simons Island shortly after graduation. St. Simons has

been my home where I raised my family and pursued a career in Interior

Design. It was only after my three daughters left home that I turned my

interest to oil painting. It was love at first brush stroke.

Recently, having the opportunity to travel to Australia for a couple

months each year, has opened another influence in my artistic pursuits. I

drawn my inspiration from the landscapes and culture of the Golden Isles,

my family and the places I travel.

To paint is to live in the moment. This quote by Mervyn Levy from

Painting for All sums up my feelings about my quest into the painting

world. “To take up painting, no matter the age, or point in one’s life, is

to have entered into a new, and deeper awareness of the whole meaning

of existence, to have tasted spiritual refreshment, and to have found the

perfect form of creative relaxation.”
