I was born, raised and
educated in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and developed an early
interest in art at my Mother's knee as she loved to draw.
After graduation, I met and married my husband, a professional
baseball player. In the many years of travel in the states
and Europe, I was afforded many opportunities to study art from
many wonderful instructors. Some of these years were spent
We chose El Paso, Texas as our home in 1973. Shortly
there-after I became a member of Las artistas. All the
while taking advantage of many workshops and instruction.
I had for many years been working in oil impaso, then I met Ann
Massey, who taught me a love of realism and the colored pencil
Eventually I discovered the art of pastels, of which I have a
strong love and respect. I became a charter member of the
Pastel Society of El Paso and served as President in 2006 -
I have received art awards here in El Paso as well as abroad.
My art has been collected around the world privately and
My objective is to remain open to new ideas, techniques and
mediums. all the while remaining true to myself.
