nana baby indianI come from several lines of Scots.  My maternal grandfather is a Ramsay.  His father Alexandar Ramsay was born and raised in Glasgow; also descendents of Alan Ramsay, the poet and his son (1700's) whose paintings hang in the National Musuem in Edinburgh; and the Ramsay's of Dalhousie.

I grew up listening to my grandfather's stories of Scotland, folk history and tales and dancing the Highland Fling. It was a thrill for me visiting Scotland, on several occasions, finding so much family history.

On my paternal side, McPheeters, I'm told that we go back to one Peter Hume during Jacobean times or earlier.

As for me, I was born in the US.  My father an American my mother, Canadian.  I ventured off in the early 70's to San Francisco where I retired from Silicon Valley as an executive director of International business.

nana sunflower jugI began painting as a youth, but was much more interested in science and medicine, so mainly dabbled.  Retiring 5 years ago, I began looking for something to keep me busy.  I found myself working with ceramics creating one of a kind plates, bowls and other types of dishes and vases.  Than I discovered watercolor.  I'm just beginning to venture out with my paintings.  As you can see I have a fairly unique style.  Certainly not one everyone will like.  One either loves or hates my painting style.

They are described as "happy" due to my impressionist style.

I'm working on a Women around the Globe series which I expect to be completed sometime late 2001.

nana Navajo & chiliI sell my work locally in the form of 8 x 11 prints and note cards.  They are quite popular locally.  I simply haven't had time to market them.  Thus, I don't yet have a web site.

I'm having an art show in December where my work will be showcased along with 6 other artists.

The local Kinko's love my work so much that they used 10 of my paintings for displays including 2 they made into marketing posters for themselves.

Currently, I'm working to illustrate a book of poetry for a writer in NYC.
