One door closes another opens”. Take a breath and step through.

I did that  years ago, when I took my first art lesson at the age of fifty three. I never looked back. I had the good fortune to live on an island with outstanding artists that shared their talent with others, an island that was beautiful to paint and populated with the most interesting people to capture on canvas. I had the opportunity to teach beginners at a great art school and formed lasting friendships.

Now another breath, another step, another island, another place filled with sea and sky.   I am now exploring the art of Mosaics. I am self taught in this medium and enjoy the exploration of light, color and rhythm in a totally different way.
