I an currently retired and finally able to devote most of my life in pursuit of my “second career” which is the love of painting. To me this is a privilege. My art has been on hold for a very long time due to work and raising four children.
I attended the Lighthouse School of Art and Design in Nyack, NY. This was a very small school which gave me the fundamentals of my art training. I was given a variety of classes in all the art disciplines. Upon graduation I married, and had to put my art interests on hold. Instead I obtained a degree and certification as a respiratory therapist. I remained in this career for sixteen years, but still painted in my free time.
I was forced to end my respiratory career due to a health issue. This in turn opened the door and gave me the opportunity to pursue my art once again. I’ve worked in oils, pastels and recently acrylics. I’ve taken advantage of entering juried shows and through them I’ve sold numerous paintings. I attempt to paint on a daily basis.
Like most things in life, only discipline and dedication can bring improvement. This is my motto towards painting.
