A Little About Me

Life experience has shown me that whenever one door closes,

God will open another … each season of life creates new, exciting opportunities. I was devastated when the physical effects of RA caused me to give up my career. Then I opened my eyes to discover the wonderful, beautiful world of art. Today I am a well contented Boomer with a different purpose. I create realistic botanical recreations & figurative sculptures of human types that appeal to me and nature’s plants, flowers & animals. My work is displayed in local galleries. I pass the benefits along to others with my art classes and by donating a portion of my sales to women who have suffered abuse. My sculpted flowers are a reminder that beauty is all around us … as long as our eyes are open to it.

this goal and at the end we had boxes of

beautiful creations.
