Location St. Augustine, Florida, United States
Introduction I am an award winning artist painting representative landscapes, flora and fauna of Florida, especially St. Augustine. I am a member of both The St. Augustine Art Association and The Art Studio at St. Augustine Beach. I paint in the style of The Hudson River School with a Caribbean twist. Whether it is through the beauty of seascapes or the Caribbean lifestyle, my passion is to create paintings that put the viewer into a "place of tranquility and peace"! From the turquoise water, the swaying palms, seagrass and birds to gorgeous flowers among colorful homes, It is a scene where we can relax, breathe and perhaps even laugh a little! I knew I wanted to be an artist at the age of 5. In the 10th grade I won my first art award at an Art Show in KY. After 6 years of formal art training, I continue to study under two well-known artists and I hope to paint for an eternity! My husband and I reside in St. Augustine, FL. My art can be seen in offices, schools and homes in FL, KY, TX, and NYC. I am represented by OCEAN ART GALLERY in Flagler Beach, FL www.flagleroceanartgallery.com
