Welcome to my website. I created this site to share what I have accomplished and maybe inspire others in pursuit of their dreams.

I retired in 2020 from a busy world of paperwork, deadlines, and more paperwork. But now, I am free to follow my passion to create art. My primary focus is working with watercolor, but I also have a strong interest in photography. They actually go hand in hand, as many times I use my photographs as resource material for my paintings.

I am a self-taught watercolorist. My interest began about 20 years ago after a trip to Bali where I took a class to learn how to create batik art. I enjoyed the process, but batik is a bit messy. Thus, the idea of watercolor came to me, which would allow me to enjoy mixing and blending color without all the mess. Other than watching a few watercolor tutorials and attending a couple of workshops, it is just trial and error, and practice, practice, practice.

I currently live on the central coast of California, where there is plenty of beauty to be found. My husband and I also enjoy world travel, which offers an infinite supply of inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by…. please take a moment and enjoy my gallery of art.

UPDATE: In 2022 I opened an Etsy shop to offer greeting cards and watercolor paintings. My shop is called LMHOriginals – you may check it out at etsy.com/shop/lmhoriginals
