I have always enjoyed painting, trying them  all, but found my love, in the 80’s, when watercolor found me.A watercolor class was the only art class that fit my schedule at the time.  My teacher was great, always encouraging me to stretch, and learn all I could.  By taking classes from other instructors and artists, I developed my own style, and continue to take classes and workshops to this day. I teach classes, enter art shows, and display my work in different locations.  Always looking for ways to promote my love of art.
I am presently a member of: TN Watercolor Society, Art Seen and the Arts Council of Williamson County

Membership Update 2018

The Arts Council of Williamson County greatly appreciates each and every member of our organization. Your membership supports artists and arts education through our programming such as the Artist in Residence Program, Micro Grants, Artists’ Studio Tour, Brown Bag Lunch Bunch, Grid Row, and Critter Invasion. We are reworking our membership to reflect our evolving needs and demands on volunteers.
As of March 2018, the Arts Council has moved to an annual membership rather than a rolling membership in which all membership renewals are due in March.  If you wish to join today, we have temporarily discounted our membership until that date. 
If you have any questions about this change in membership or would like make a greater impact on the arts in Williamson County through volunteerism, please email
