About Me and Art
In the course of my life, I have been many things—waitress, teacher, PhD graduate, citrus farmer, author of books and articles, even Deputy Assistant Secretary of State. Woven throughout, regardless of what I was doing to earn a living, there has been the thread of art.
My introduction to the art world was through theater at age 14, in 1963, when I began taking lessons and working at the Dallas Theater Center. I fell in love with costumes, set design, and drama. My experience onstage helped me immeasurably in understanding how an audience visualizes a scene, and has informed my painting, photography, and filmmaking.
My first oil painting, in 1963, was of the Kalita Humphreys Theater. Oil on canvas was my first medium and I continue to paint, both with oils and acrylics. This website is dedicated to my painting. If you are interested in my fine-art photography, you can see it at this website HERE. If you are interested in seeing more about a feature film I made, you can go HERE.
