Throughout high school and college, I took all the art and photography classes offered at the time. Once my children were mostly grown, I tip-toed back into a more focused creative life. It began with photography and a 'secret' daily practice of drawing and sketching a variety of subjects, from simple doodles to portraits using charcoal. I soon found that I could not wait to get home from my day job to play in my sketchbook. It brought much relaxation and the stress of the day would melt away. This same daily practice is still an important part of my life today. My art is personal, emotional and a reflection of my own experiences. Each painting has a different story. I incorporate a variety of mediums both traditional and non traditional.
I am a lifelong Mid-westerner, calling Wisconsin home. I have two grown sons and am forever grateful for their love and support. I enjoy long walks, good food, and great conversation with friends and family. In the in-between moments, I can be found in my dining room/studio painting and creating. I am so grateful that you are here.
A portion of the proceeds of my art sales will be donated to a carefully and thoughtfully selected program benefiting children.
