  "From an early age I was enchanted by the expression possible in drawing and painting. With much encouragement my creative pursuits led me to study at UGA Lamar Dodd School of Art where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in drawing and painting. When I attended studio classes, the Art School was located on Jackson Street near downtown Athens. There were many opportunities for students to venture out and draw scenes of historic North Campus and town. This setting opened up a whole new world to me. I am grateful to the professors who taught us invaluable lessons like composition and color theory, which I continue to use in my craft. I am still inspired by the beauty in and around Athens. Architecture and landscapes are my favorite subjects. Watercolor, with its transparency and brilliance, is my medium of choice."
