BioI moved to Franklin, Tennessee 7 years ago from Overland Park, Kansas, where my husband and I raised our three daughters. Although I had been dabbling in artistic endeavors since a child and Art was my minor in college, I hadn't picked up a paint brush till 4 years ago. My younger sister (a working artist in Pontiac, Michigan) passed away from a brain aneurysm at 60 and this event spurred me to take up painting where my sister had left off. I divide my time between Tennessee and south Florida. I am a member of the Delray Art League and show my works with this group as well as the Chestnut Group in Tennessee.
