She has loved drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil, but did not start painting until taking art classes on her days off from work.  After graduating from the Kewaunee Academy of Art in 2010, she moved to Oahu where she discovered the camaraderie of other artists who paint en plein aire.   She now participates in Art Shows with WAG, the Pastel Artists of Hawaii, and AHA. An avid swimmer, she walks her effervescent border collie Lucy each and every day.
