Art From the Heart
About the Artist
I came to art late in life. I had always admired some oil paintings my grandmother had done; they were rendered in the style of the old masters. She died when I was four, though, so I never got a chance to learn from her.
As with many of us, life got in the way.... I grew up, married and raised four children and worked. As I was preparing to retire I decided I wasn't going to learn any younger, so I took courses in drawing and oil painting from the Wake County Community College in Raleigh, North Carolina ... I was hooked! Although I am not a formally trained artist -- I do not hold a degree, at least not yet -- I have taken every opportunity to broaden my skills through books, workshops, classes and painting, painting, painting.
