I studied painting and drawing at the University of Wisconsin but am largely self taught.   After a 20 year career as a nurse midwife I decided to 'retire' to pursue my life long desire to become a full time artist.  I live in rural Tennessee on 20 acres that I share with my musician husband.  We've affectionally named our small piece of paradise FIREFLY HILL.  It is here that I find the inspiration and solitude to interpret the beauty in the world.   Here are some photos of our life on Firefly Hill which I will try and update periodically.  Thanks for visiting me here...I hope you enjoy!
