“ found treasures” to create her palette.

She sometimes uses them all in one painting!

 

She has developed her style after taking workshops with several abstract 

artists throughout the U. S.  She uses the colors and subjects of nature: 

flowers, landscapes, animals, seascapes, and just about everything

to fill her canvasses.
