Roberta and her husband moved from Connecticut to South Carolina in 2001 for retirement. Before the move, she worked for a company's advertising department for many years. Along with other responsibilities, she ventured into photography, processing and printing photos in a dark room, plus designing and producing slide shows for worldwide company presentations. At that point, she knew she was destined for the art world. Two years before the move, a photo from their youngest son was an inspiration to pick up a brush and be creative. Painting became a new vision for Roberta that turned into a true passion. Once in South Carolina, she joined local art associations and attended many workshops and classes to pursue and share her creative work with others and to bring as much joy into their world as it has into hers. Roberta has studied with many local artists along with self taught techniques. Much of her works are currently on exhibit at local galleries and businesses, one being the Carolina Opry Theatre in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Roberta's work can be found in private collections throughout the states along with one of her works selected for a front cover in a local magazine. Throughout her years of painting there is one thing she has learned and that is "Never Stop Learning!"
