Good afternoon Blogger Friends!

Let me share a little about myself with you.

I grew up in a small fishing community on the beautiful coast of Southern Maine where my ongoing love of the ocean and coastline underlies and inspires my work. My interest in capturing nature, oceanside communities and small glimpses of whimsical items in watercolor had its beginnings as a young girl. I spent much of my time growing up down at the fishing docks and on the beaches.

I specialize in the medium of watercolor, and especially love incorporating fine detailing in my paintings, it is extemely fun and challenging. I am also an accomplished graphic designer of twenty years. Currently I paint and illustrate for “Just Around the Block,” building blocks of memories. You can see more of my work on my website whiteoakstudioandgallery.com or at justaroundtheblock.com.

I love nature and all things beautiful . . . I am on the long road home just meandering as I go enjoying the scenery, being refreshed and restored along the way. It is my hearts desire to use my talent and gift, to honor the God of the Universe who gave them to me, living a life of thankfulness daily, and making a subtle difference, one painting, one person, at a time.

My favorite quote: “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
