I have always been interested in drawing since I could
hold a pencil, so no one in my family was surprised when
I wanted to study art in college. I earned my degree in
art from the University of WI, Madison, during the time when
art was not really taught-- everything was free form and art
for art's sake was the thing.
I really learned how to paint later in life when I took
workshops directed at what I wanted to learn, mainly
I now am having a wonderful time exploring all mediums.
