After too many years of letting perfectionism
get in the way of learning watercolor painting,   

I jumped in with both feet with encouragement from my mom – Joan Mann –
an artist.  She taught me to see that I have my own unique style
and told me to go with it.  I am and it’s fun! 

I love color.  I love getting out of my head when I paint.

I love feeling the glow of satisfaction when I finish a painting.  This is definitely
one of those “it’s the journey, not the destination” things.  I’m building my skills
as I go, helped by taking courses with these talented artists and teachers:

 

Gina Rossi Armfield

Jane LaFazio

Jacqueline Newbold

Liesel Lund
 

I keep watercolor travel journals and capture some of the sights my husband Chuck and I see on our adventures. I also weave creativity and art into many of the workshops I lead.

How do you feed your creative spirit?

The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave it neither power or time.
