After being the "artsy" first grade teacher for 38 years, i am enjoying getting to do my own art.  My dog, Kai, and I spend our days enjoying the beauty of the central California coast.  In this diverse area we can go from beaches to forests to wildflower covered hills in a day.  The amazing beauty of the waves, butterflies, birds, and flowers are reflected in my watercolor paintings.  I love watercolor because of the luminescent translucent quality of the paint.
