My friends encouraged me to do this art show–I’m not an artist–I dabble! in paints and watercolor–and have fun doing it–it’s amazing what you can do–just try it, you may enjoy it! There’s no right or wrong in the end results–only your own interpretation of what something looks like–I have NO training in what I do–mostly my work is in acrylics–some watercolor.

I grew up on a small dairy farm 2 1/2 hrs from Ithaca (oldest of eleven). Came to Ithaca in 1962 or so to work as a hairdresser– married in 1966 (great husband)–have 3 wonderful sons–no grandchildren. Have been a caregiver for several people in the area but now I enjoy the simple things in life–painting, exercise, reading, jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, quilting, knitting, cooking, baking, etc. It’s time for the next chapter–so enjoy!

At times I always cut out snowflakes for my windows and doors and paint a Christmas card–I have several note cards that I give to friends–they seem to enjoy them and that’s all that counts! I’ll never be famous–my work is really not that good. It’s all about the fun for me.
