Several years ago I retired from a financial job in a corporate role. I don’t have formal art school training, but have always participated in community education. I’m a perpetual student, and learn something new from each instructor and every class. My preferred mediums are watercolor or colored pencil. Subjects I love are animals, birds, flowers and plants. Photography has been a serious hobby of mine since I was a teenager. My camera is my primary tool to record the beauty of nature and reference for my art.
