Always "creating something" as a child led to the desire to study commercial art/advertising design until a high school guidance counselor made my career choice seem undesirable pushing me into interior design. After discovering that wasn't “me,” a marriage, child and divorce I taught 7th grade history for 19 years until CANCER changed everything! Realizing we had no time to waste, my husband and I chose to make our Floyd vacation home permanent in 2018. I am following my heart and creating the art I always dreamed of! I paint things that move me and make me happy. Just Leap!
