I have been an artist all my life but have never been able to settle into any one medium. I love it all and accept a new medium as an enjoyable challenge. Most of my current work is done in acrylic or watercolor, and enjoy painting from my own photographs. I am a realist, but also draw with a passion and sometimes develop cartoon-style characters to use as cute, decorative designs for pins and ornaments,etc. I believe that drawing is the basis for good art and I encourage all aspiring artists and experienced ones, as well, to carry a sketchbook with them, wherever they go!
I majored in Commercial Art at the Ohio State University and completed two years of study before marrying and raising three children. I returned to my love of art in 1988 by taking Tole Painting classes with friend, Vera Collier. After several years of studying in oils and acrylics under a variety of national artists, I began painting and teaching my own designs. During this time, I added watercolors to my list of favorite mediums. I've authored 300+ instructional designs, three books on decorative art, and numerous magazine articles. I've won many awards in acrylics, watercolors, oils, and photography at fairs and Fine Art Shows in Northwestern Ohio. One award was a Best of Show in Photography at Arts Place, St. Marys, OH.
