Born, raised and spent most of my life living in a London suburb in England, working as a secretary after raising my two daughters. My late husband and I initially arrived in Arizona June 1996.
We had a dream; to live and work in the United States; Harvey wanted to help people. For me who knew? We had accomplished our dream now what!!
After a series of unpleasant events, culminating, in January 1998, my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor; he passed away three months later. Soon after his death I moved down here to Rimrock; on the property we bought together after almost thirty years of marriage.
The first two or three years I spent most of my time in reflection seeking Spiritual guidance.
I began making jewelry approximately five years ago; at the time unskilled and with no idea which direction I was going in. I began to incorporate my daughter and son-in-law's unique, handmade glass beads. Every piece of bead jewelery is unique; not one piece is like another.
After a couple of years of attending art shows around Arizona I decided to return to painting after a twenty year break. I am self-taught; Except for the help and advice from my daughter on the jewelery making, I have never taken a class in either jewelery making or painting. My medium is acrylics and enjoy experimenting with different styles and subjects.
My main love is Native American Symbology and the desert scenery.
To continue growing Spiritually and to improve my work in whatever direction it takes me; I am now moving on with new interests although I will, of course continue painting; I have a lot more to say speaking through my art.
