Welcome to Painted Words, an art blog related to calligraphy, painting and creativity. I’m a visual artist with a background in hand-lettering. My husband Bill is a painter, and we’ve been working artists for over forty years. For twenty of those years we traveled halfway across the country to put our artworks out before the public at outdoor festivals. We now live in a corner of paradise on Florida’s Gulf Coast where birds, fish and people flock and artists can happily live and work.
I’ll be writing about peak experiences, art encounters and ongoing projects that have some relevance for me. There are so many avenues to explore, if only I could get another forty years out of life to do them!
