It’s art that gets me going. Planning a painting, getting out the brushes and tubes of paint, setting up the easel stirs my blood. When I can bring my subject, a flower or a person, to life, wow, what a feeling. Better than chocolate!

I grew up in New Orleans, Louisiana and Wichita, Kansas. I earned a BFA from Bethany College, Lindsborg, Kansas. I taught art in public schools, then worked in batik. After a second life as a librarian, I returned to art and the challenge of painting. I live in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul area of Minnesota.

Please contact me with any questions or comments you may have about my work. I’d be delighted to hear from you.
