ARTIST STATEMENT

I was born in St. Paul, MN and my love of art started in school. I was always doing pencil drawings of my favorite subjects-horses and dogs.

As the path of life took me into marriage and family, it was not until the last of my 6 children graduated from high school that I took up art again. My husband gave me a gift certificate of 6 months China painting classes and I was on my way.

In 1998 my husband and I retired to a small town in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. There I started oil painting classes and continued to develop my art skills. I believe I learn more with each painting I do.

We spent 15 years wintering in Arizona where I was able to exhibit my art in several art shows. I was very fortunate that people enjoyed my work enough to purchase many of them. I also won several awards for some of my paintings in Wickenburg, Quartzite, and Bouse, Arizona. Many of my works are in personal residences in California, Tennessee, Michigan, Montana, Washington, South Dakota, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

I do not paint with oils at this time. I have done pastels and acrylic, but my medium of choice at this time is watercolor.

My love of painting has expanded over the years, and I now enjoy painting anything-landscapes, portraits, animals, flowers, etc. I love to take a subject and build a background around it so it can seem to tell a story.
