My career choices have not been related to the arts at all. I was a System Analyst for 10 years, Middle School Math Teacher for 12 years and an Accounting Manager for the past 9 years. With the structure my careers take, I embrace the arts for the relaxation and freedom it gives me.
Although I started later in life painting, I have always had an interest in art. I enjoy traveling and experiencing the local art around the world. I have always been a crafter and quilter and there isn’t much I haven’t tried. I started dabbling with oil painting about 8+ years ago, acrylics 5+ years ago and watercolor 3+ years. I love the challenge that watercolor gives me, and although I have not mastered any mediums, I do truly enjoy them all.
