Born in the mountains of Pennsylvania, now living in the mountains of Georgia, I am a mountain girl at heart. In addition to portraits of people and pets, I love to paint all the mountain critters, and thrill to the sights and sounds of living in such a beautiful world.  I came to the world of drawing and painting relatively late in life, but I’ve truly been bitten by the “creating” bug.  In addition to the mountain life around me, I am constantly inspired by all of the loves of my life:  husband, family, and two very spoiled Golden Retrievers.   Thank you for stopping by.
