THE PAPA GALLERY
My interest in painting began while I was in high school by being encouraged by a talented art teacher by the name of Sister Mary Mercedes. I resumed painting in the early 80’s after quitting work and moving to the country.
My skills improved after attending workshops by accomplished artists and I also attended Paducah Community College where I took drawing, painting and design classes for four semesters. My favorite medium is watercolor, but I also enjoy working with oils, acrylics and pastels. My paintings are in private collections in Kentucky, Illinois, California, Florida and New Mexico.
My awards include:
- People’s Choice
- First Place Oil, Second Place Watercolor – Paducah Woman’s Club Art Show
- Best of Show, Marshall County Fair
- First Place Watercolor – Mayfield/Graves County Art Guild
I am a member of the Paducah Area Painters Alliance, The Marshall County Art Guild, the Princeton Art Guild and previously The Yeiser Art Center and Mayfield/Graves County Art Guild.
