I am a landscape artist and my favorite subjects are cottages and gardens using vivid colors and detail work. I use acrylics and have a room especially designed for painting, with large windows and a cupboard full of paints and brushes. Some of my art has been published as greeting cards and puzzles.
For several years, I have also been a professional, theatrical style pianist and organist for several wedding reception centers, movie theatres (providing organ music before and after the movie), and for funeral homes. I also freelance as a pianist for hire. Music and art go hand-in-hand in making life exciting and interesting for me. Music utilizes rhythm as does art and both require lots of practice and dedication. Art has been a great blessing. I love to create something beautiful on a blank canvas that will last for years and bring joy to others.
