My name is Loretta and I am a watercolor artist. I am fortunate to live in rural Plumas county where the slow pace gives a person time to look at life in 3D: depth, dimension and delight. I love painting in watercolor because it lends itself to the most varied and subtle expressions.

I am self taught and I am always learning. I have taken a few classes over the years just for fun or to learn a new technique. I am a long time member of the Workshop for Plumas Artists (WPA), Won 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Best of Show, and Best of Division at the Plumas County Fair. I have Exhibited at the Gallery Show in Taylorsville, Plumas Arts in Quincy, and Good Vibrations in Chester. I have donated various pieces to Art Around the Lake, Greenville Crab Feed and Feather River Land Trust to raise money for their events and auctions. I am proud and happy that my painting of the Heart K ranch house in Genesee this fall earned $400 for the FRLT.

I am a retired school secretary, wife, mother, artist. Life has taught me that you don't have to be perfect to be a painter – just a happy person who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
