Picasso said, ” The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to share it”.
For years I have sought out new ways of expressing my natural restlessness. Painting has been a mainstay of my activities for 28 years. I am still passionate about painting coastal landscapes and find traveling to new coves or seascapes stimulating. I try different styles, particularly contemporary abstracts, but return to landscapes as my main interest. She has four grown sons.
