Art for your life! 

Why I paint


Until Covid 19 upended life as we know it, I was a full time university professor.   During the quarantine, I rediscovered a hobby from high school and college; drawing and painting. 





Being forced to remain at home was  depressing, and to make matters worse restaurants, churches and businesses were closed.  So I started painting.  I have always enjoyed abstract art and midcentury graphic portraits. But I had forgotten how freeing the act of having a pen /brush in my hand could be. 


Creating  artwork is cathartic; it provides an outlet for the unspeakable thoughts and feelings that we all have.  When I tell people that I am "arting" for my life they laugh, but it is true.  Try it yourself.
