My fascination with the ability to create an external representation of what the mind visually perceives began as a child; with forays into drawing and film photography.
It was also my good fortune to have a mother who enjoyed oil painting and art history. She encouraged my growing powers of observation and inquisitive nature by promoting and enhancing my appreciation of fine art and colorful imagery in various media with lessons, art out- ings, and museum visits.
After a career in clinical medicine, I developed a special interest and fondness for the luminous qualities of watercolor painting. Taking every opportunity to participate in painting classes and workshops, this affection grew into a passion. As a member of the NM Watercolor Soci- ety, I am pleased to have achieved Signature Member Group status, and plan to enjoy a lifelong avocation in watercolor art.
