Lonnie Ripley has lived in Decatur, Ga since 1972 and has 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. She worked in the Decatur City School System for 7 years, then went back to school and became an RN and worked at Dekalb Medical Center for 27 years. After retirement, she began painting watercolors with Dot Mahnken and quickly found her passion: flowers! As an avid gardener, Lonnie loves the shapes, colors, and special allure of all sorts of flowers. She is currently offering her paintings as 5x7 card prints - a size easily suitable for pre-cut mats and frames. She hopes you enjoy her cards, both as artwork and as a means of communicating with someone special.
