Retirement has given me the time to pursue my interest in art. The first step was to enroll in two semesters of drawing at the College of Southern Maryland, after which I started taking instruction in watercolor painting. I've taken classes with many artists in the Southern Maryland region; with the Alexandria Art League in Old Town Alexandria; the Road Scholar program; Cheap Joe's in Boone, NC; the Hudson River Valley Art Workshops; Pat Troiani; Sheryl Williams and most recently, I've become hooked on painting with Oil and Cold Wax and have taken classes with Linda Benton McCloskey and Lisa Boardwine.
My work has been shown at many galleries and shows throughout Maryland and Virginia. Currently, I'm a member of Annmarie Sculpture Garden, the Calvert Artists'; Guild, the Art League of Ocean City (MD), the St. Mary's Art Council, and the Mattawoman Creek Art Center.
