I live in an equine-oriented community. I’ve had horses most of my life, but am now “horse-less”. We have an acre of land which I try to keep filled with flowers (depending on the time of the year). I attended Oregon State University, then worked as an office manager, and then as a flight attendant for United. After getting married, I worked for Xerox as a Customer Representative in the state of Nevada. I have lived in New York City, Guam, San Francisco, So. California, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada (Las Vegas)–not necessarily in that order! I have been into art most of my life and started seriously painting about 25 years ago. Painted first in oils, switched to watercolors and now do both. Painting is a passion with me and I’d rather be out on location painting plein air than almost anything else.
