After  retiring from a long rewarding career in nursing, I have the  opportunity to pursue my love of art, nature and gardening. My first  encounter with botanical art was a watercolor class at Morton Arboretum  in Lisle, Illinois. Relocating to the Lake Geneva area in Wisconsin has  allowed me to explore a peaceful joy in gardening and the quiet beauty  of nature.  


My goal is to capture the subtle details and patterns in  nature which surround me. I enjoy the challenge of balancing observation  and artistic expression. I currently study botanical art with Lynne  Railsback and with Heeyoung Kim. I am a member of the Reed-Turner  Botanical Artist group, the American Society of Botanical Artists and  the Geneva Lake Arts Foundation.
