I have lived in Calaveras County, in the Mokelumne Hill area; for the last 47 years. I always painted and did other Artistic things while growing up. Things went on hold for a time during child rearing. Later, I took classes in Oil Painting and Pottery at Delta College in Stockton, CA. Since my retirement from retail; I have more time and am back to painting and mixed media Art. I get a lot of my inspiration from looking at Art Galleries and while traveling. I often have dreams about my next project and can hardly wait to see what happens when implemented. Sometimes I feel they turn out good, and sometimes, not. But, I am still doing what I love to do…ART!
