Artist at heart, and proud and humbled to be a painter. Started to paint after retirement, although in one way or another, always kept herself involved with art. Like to use media that allows the brush to flow and express movements, such as oils, acrylics, watercolor, and Sumi ink. “When I paint or draw, my eyes guide me to natures’ constant change, to peoples’ characters and expressions, then I try to capture the essence and mystery of the fleeting moment, and at the end create a product of my imagination.”
