During her mural painting years, she developed a portfolio of hundreds of murals featuring birds, insects, animals, grasses, and wildflowers. Her experience confidently led her to move into canvas painting of the natural world. This switch, made fifteen years ago, marked the beginning of her expansive career as a fine art painter with a growing library of over 2,500 works.

Having been raised in a small town that is rich in history, she has continually been drawn to the simpler way of life. Back when communicating was both sharing information and a keepsake. When you take time out of your day to write someone a letter, you give them a piece of yourself...a personal touch.
