Life as a Painter began in Ireland while leading a Proprioceptive Writing Retreat at Anam Cara Artist and Writes Retreat; A watercolor workshop was also in process and I was invited to Join. Reluctant at first, but with the first stroke of vibrant color and the magical West of Ireland light I discovered my passion...colo. I became known as the writer who came to write and left as a painter. Travels in India, Tbet Ireland, , Mexico as well as beloved Maine continue tto inspire. Study includes work with Evelyn Dunphy, Stephen Quiller, Jeanne Carbonneti, and Doug Mays.
