Although I have always been artistic, I didn't pursue my God-given talent until 2015, after the death of my husband. My love is Oil painting with Meroger medium; my goal is to paint realistic paintings.
After several drawing classes and several media exposures at the Hanover Area Arts Guild in early 2015, I began to study under Paulette Flemmens, a seasoned professional artist who studied at the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, MD.
I love to paint rich, dramatic paintings. Painting has opened up a whole new world for me. Reproducing the Old Masters' work is my true passion. Especially Bouguereau, a famous French master renowned for flesh tones and realism.
In a short period of time, I have excelled in this medium. Sometimes painting 10-12 hours a day, I have certainly made up for lost time! My work is diversified from portraits (animal and human), florals, landscapes, and still life. Portraits are by far the most challenging and rewarding.
Always inspired and truly grateful,
