At the Norman Branch, in the lobby, we feature Artists from the Studio Painting class at the Firehouse Art Center displaying professional, quality paintings in oils, watercolors, pastels, acrylic and pencil in a variety of subjects and styles.
I have spent a lifetime observing nature and people. I bring these experiences to my artwork, capturing memories that I want to share with others for their enjoyment. Also to encourage them to be more observant of the world around them, to be aware of small things that make a difference.
Painting was a lifelong dream but busy raising 4 daughters left little time to do so other than a workshop here and there. After moving to Norman I was introduced to the Fire House Art Center where I eventually began studying with Carol Armstrong. She’s been my greatest influence for the last 19 years. I’ve also taken part in workshops with Cletus Smith and Sonya Terpening in watercolors and Gay Fulkenberry in oils. Painting is my joy and my stress relief and I’m thankful for the chance to share with others.
