Nurtured by a family of architects, artists and teachers, I was joyfully encouraged to pursue my love of art. Even in elementary school, I loved mixing those brilliant colors of tempera paint and brought home many a painting dripping with those primary colors!

Art classes began at about age eight at the High Museum, followed by classes at Westminster. My major at Agnes Scott was in art, and I focused on pottery and studied painting under Ferdinand Warren. After graduation, more classes followed, this time at Georgia State.

The Art Institute at the High later provided classes in pastel and figure drawing under Kathy Anglin and Joan Tysinger. Instruction recently has been under Plein Air painters Millie Gosch, Sue Stewart, Larry Moore, Perry Austin, Gene Costanza and Julian Merow-Smith. I love painting in my studio and also try to paint "en plein air" as often as the weather allows, primarily in the South or in France. The goal, both indoors and outdoors, is to "find the light," searching for the contrasts between shadows and light areas, finding the color harmonies that make a painting vibrant.
