Lives in:  Bethesda, MD. 

Why you joined MAA:  I joined MAA to push myself to enter art shows and to challenge myself to do my best work, and to get out of my comfort zone and try new subjects and media.

Media & Subjects:  I use mainly water color but I also do mixed media. When I do zen tangles I use felt tip markers. I love nature and so I like to paint flowers and landscapes. I tend to be very eclectic so whatever inspires me at a given moment becomes my subject. 

Artist Biography:  I have had two careers. I started as an elementary school teacher. Then I went back to school for an MSW and worked as a geriatric social worker. I started painting after I retired and am so grateful to have a hobby that I can pursue at home especially during this pandemic while we have been at home for such a long time.
