Making art is part of my history and my life. Drawing and painting since childhood, I have taken additional courses, workshops including calligraphy classes. Since I retired and moved to Cameron Park in 1999, I’ve had a great time playing at a variety of mediums: watercolor, oils, mixed media, acrylic, pen and ink plus papermaking, pastels and calligraphy.
