About The Artist

 

I grew up in the North Georgia Mountains with one brother and three sisters. We had a hard life as did most families where we lived.

After my children left home I found I had a lot of time on my hands and started exploring different hobbies. I have always loved a good mystery but reading couldn’t fill my time. In August 2005, I began taking lessons from a dear friend, Irene Grasty. She showed me that I could paint if I was willing to take the time to learn. I started out in oils and soon found that water colors were the medium I enjoy most. Although I still paint in oils, too I am a “Realistic” artist. I strive to paint simple things that have feelings and a story behind them.

I started out giving family members my paintings and since my grandchildren, Angelina and Brandon, Jr., live in Houston it was a way for them to remember me when I couldn’t be there with them.

With the “recession” I found myself without a job, so I returned to school fulltime. I don’t have as much time to paint but still take time to attend water color classes, taught by a wonderful artist, Virgil Smith. He is a true teacher and shares tips he has learned in his life time of painting. The only paintings that hang in my home are Virgil’s and my own! I have also painted with Robert Stamey and he is another influence on my work.

My husband, John, has supported me in every way. He makes it easier for me to use my time doing the things I truly enjoy.

God has given us a beautiful world if we just take the time to “see” some of the simple things around us everyday. His world is extraordinary and I thank Him for the ability He has given to me.
