“I am often asked the question regarding what I like to paint.  I could no more limit my subjects
than I could limit my diet to bread and water. There are as many things to paint as there are
human beings and objects.

I paint as if my soul depends on it. It is more than my pastime. It is where I place my energy and
I get that energy from my art friends that I share this wonderful adventure with, and family,
especially my husband.”
