A bit about myself....

For as long as I can remember, I have always had an artistic talent.
In grade school I recall my girl friend and I getting together after class and doing little 8 x 10 paintings, using old greeting cards, magazines for inspiration.

The following years were full of sketching, and creating. I majored in art during high school. I even won a weeks scholarship to the Art Museum in Chicago and another week to the Robert Allerton House in Monticello, Illinois.

After high school, I married and had two fine boys by the time I was 23. In the late 1970's, once the boys were older, I gathered some materials and signed on at Fedelle's Art Studio in Chicago. I took classes to learn pastels and portraiture. That was the beginning of my more serious work. Life went on until May of 1987. I lost my husband, Robin, to cancer.

In the early part of 1989 I moved to Texas and I remarried in '92. After several years of adjusting to the heat, humidity and country style living on a small farm, raising emu, rhea and a pair of ostrich, I found the Rainbow Art League of Bridge City. I joined this happy group of artists and attended weekly gatherings to paint and learn from the teacher of the month.
After the first year I was elected their president, and held the title for nearly 3 years. The league participated in a volunteered group painting for the Bridge City Chamber of Commerce, to hang in the Bridge City Historical Museum.

During this time I also became a member of the Texas Artist Museum of Port Arthur, and attended weekly sessions there. During these years I entered my work in several shows. I have won many blue ribbons on these entries and also the Best of Show, for my dads portrait at the Gulf Coast National Art Show.

In 1997, my marriage ended and I moved to South Carolina. I started to paint again while working at a nearby hospital. Then through the wonder of the internet, I met Ron in '99 and just over a year later I came to England and never looked back. Ron is also a fine artist and you can see his work at Ron Greenfield.com. We were married July 13, 2002 and my life is wonderful and happy even though I did homesick for family and friends. We have since moved to Louisiana...but that's another story.

That's it in a nutshell. I hope you enjoy your visit...Thank you!
