At first, she studied elementary education, but after taking a few art classes, she decided to pursue her passion and move to Jacksonville to study watercolor. For the last nine years, she has been a member of the Art League of North Florida and the Gateway Art Gallery, where she teaches watercolor classes and volunteers her time helping with community and Art League events. Beyond her volunteer work, she is always ready to participate in competitions and her most favorite part is leading the Youth Art League with fellow artist, Pat Albala.
