At an early age, I was diagnosed with Rheumatic Fever and was bedridden for over a year. I was home schooled by my mother. Lucky me! Lucky because, in addition to teaching me the usual reading, writing, and math that I would have gotten in school, she taught me to look for the magic in nature and to portray it first with my beloved crayons and later in oils. Thanks Mom ...

         Drawing and painting has always been important, even a necessary part of my life. When I was finally able to go back to school, I was always in trouble for drawing on my assignments. When I was in the fourth grade, I got my first set of oil paints.

         Eagerly, I started my freshman year in college as an art major and by Christmas time, I was disolution by a boring curriculum. My instructors did not see art as I saw it or teach the things I needed to become an artist. It was during the hippy era in the mid 1960's and my art teachers were greatly influenced by this period. I did not feel a toilet seat painted in psychedlic colors or a chair with tic tac toe painted on the seat as art. Although I quit college against my parent's wishes, a short time later, I took private lessons from artists who I respected and admired.

         Over the years, I have been so busy creating dolls, I did not realize time had slipped away. Now, 30 years later, my early love for painting has once again become an important part of my life. So ... these days when I want to relax, I pick up my brushes and paint.

        These paintings will be available on my website. In addition to my original canvas paintings, I will also be creating a limited number of prints. At my age, as time goes on, I look forward to painting more and creating fewer dolls.
