Born and raised in Camden, Arkansas, I followed in my dad’s footsteps in the watch & jewelry repair business. After a 45-year career at this I retired in 2004.
Upon retirement, my husband and I moved to Arkadelphia in 2005 to be near our daughter. This move gave me the opportunity to discover the art world. Under the guidance of Farrell Ford, I’ve come to develop a knowledge and passion for oil painting. Also, I have found the intricate work and detail required in my career has been very helpful in art, whether it be landscapes, animals, flowers, or barns! I love it all. There’s great joy in painting.
