Q: What can you tell us about your artistic journey?
A: I have always enjoyed drawing and painting. While in college at the University of Arkansas, I tried to persuade my father that it was all right to major in art education. He thought I should be in a more “practical” field! I did graduate with a degree in elementary education and continued to take art classes during my 38 years of teaching.
Q: What type of art do you enjoy most?
A: I love the transparency of watercolors and the challenge of controlling their intensity to suit my subject matter. I also love to paint landscapes and flowers, as well as to incorporate collages into my watercolors. When I’m not painting, I enjoy golf, bridge, reading, and socializing.
Q: What are some of your key accomplishments in the art world?
A: I’ve held a number of leadership roles in this region. I was a past president of the SaddleBrooke Fine Arts Guild. I am also a Signature Member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild where I was co-chair of the workshop committee. In this capacity, I helped bring talented instructors from around the world to the greater Tucson area.
