About The Artist

Artist Statement

I have always loved to paint and had hopes of becoming an art teacher in the elementary schools. However, while in college, I took a left turn and married my art professor who was a successful painter and printmaker.  It’s not easy developing and growing into an artist in that situation so I just redirected my artistic energies elsewhere, to my garden, home and crafts, eventually taking that right turn and returning to school for a graduate degree and then working as a paralegal and office administrator.  I always felt that when the next right turn time came, I would return to painting and I have.  I have worked in various media but feel that I have finally found my artistic love, watercolor. I paint with the Magnolias. a watercolor group mentored by Cara Brown.  There is so much joy in choosing the subjects to paint and to find them coming to life out of the paper. My subjects are from the natural world.


Born in France, emigrated as a child. Have lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Manchester UK and Marin (since 1970).
