Short Bio: I was born in Paris, France after the war and brought to America as a 3 month-old baby. Transported with my Mother to America by my Father, a G.I. who married my Mother in Paris after serving in the European theatre during WWII. I'm told that we sailed aboard a converted liberty ship, a couple of dozen Mothers and their babies in the deep of Winter. Freighters, supply-ships, even Navy ships were loaded with brides and their infants, but without the benefit of their G.I. husbands, and for weeks, sailed across the Atlantic with armed Navy escorts and against heavy seas. Evidently, at that time, German submarines were still sinking ships by torpedo-fire, long after the war had ended...Anyway, from there, we were lucky enough to continue to Long Beach, California, by train after landing in New York!

I'm self-taught as a watercolorist and feel deeply gratified for having successfully marketed myself in the arts and am blessed to be able to presently enjoy painting in my studio at home. I am grateful for these gracious gifts, and by His grace, helping me to bring beauty into my personal created images....everything from drawings and portraits to plein-aire landscapes. Posted here on FAA, are a couple-dozen of my photo images and paintings which are not only a subjective translation of what I see, but an outward emotional expression of how I choose to portray the world. Many of my outdoor subjects are painted, on-site, using the highest grade watercolors along with the finest European-fabricated papers--ALL built for ultimate color-fastness and extreme longevity.
