Dot and Bill
A talented artist, she said she had always painted in oil colors until moving to the beach 17 years ago. Her work can be seen on FineArtAmerica.
"The oils seemed too heavy for the softness of our southern landscapes. I switched to watercolors with the help of Betty Bee."
She is a member of the Back Porch Painters, The Waccamaw Arts and Crafts Guild and South Carolina Watercolor Society.
She has been active on Briarcliffe Town Council in the small South Carolina beach community, as mayor pro tem and as mayor.
on achieving such an important milestone!
