My interest in art as a means of expression began with photography. Little did I know, growing up in Wabash, how much I loved Indiana…nature…and the power of photography to create highly personal impressions.

Wherever I am, I look around and try to find subjects which are, to me, interesting and/or beautiful…different things at different times of the year. That is why I always have my camera with me, whether on my way to feed the birds, to walk to the mailbox, or to pick a green pepper from the garden. I want to be ready.

As my eye and confidence grew, I interacted more with other artists here in Jasper County. I learned from them - formally and informally.

This connection to our area's art community has recently helped my artistic interest expand to watercolors, which I appreciate especially for their delicacy and transparency.

Not until after retirement was I able to take the time to ''look'' at things the way I believe they should be viewed and enjoyed, both with a lens and with a paintbrush.

I hope you enjoy this perspective of my world.
