I am an Artist. My medium is acrylic, when I paint. I also do flower arranging, and make quilts. I was also a photographer for 26 years and owned my own studio. A few years ago, I picked up a paint brush and have never looked back. One of the things I love to paint are killer whales, flowers, mountains & pretty images of places. If you need an artists rendering of a killer whale, I could be your personal artist. Clients hire me to fill space at home or in the office.
I belong to many different ART groups that give me diversity. I give quilts to people in need, paint to give hope, and arrange flowers to make people smile. So my passion is ART in a variety of forms, people buy it because they love it. I love the hands on work I do. I find it very rewarding to be able to create something beautiful for others.
Maybe that's one of the reasons I love Rotary so much. It allows me to "create" ways to help our community and the world we all live in. I like to travel and to give back in so many ways. Besides, I also get to meet a whole bunch of really great people in my community of Redmond, in Washington, and around the world.

Ps... Here I am in the Grand Canyon, Nov 1996, watching the sunrise at 5:30am .... it was so beautiful and cold! I will never forget that trip or the colors of the Canyon.
