I have been interested in art since I was a child. I was always copying drawings
and pictures from magazines and was encouraged by my mother to do so as she,
too, was an art enthusiast and loved to draw. I have taken various workshops and
community classes over the years, and finally decided to enroll in The Academy of
Fine Art, Denmark, WI which is directed by Molly Johnson, a well-known
professional artist. I am a recent graduate of the Academy. I have been juried into
the Secura Art Show in Appleton, WI as well as the Miller Museum Art Show in
Sturgeon Bay, WI. I have also exhibited several times in the Arts Unlimited Spring
Show in Green Bay, have chaired two of their art exhibitions, and have been an
award winner. I exhibited at the Wickenburg Gold Rush Art Show in Wickenburg,
AZ and won an award there.
I am a past president of Arts Unlimited, and of the Green Bay Art Colony. I paint
with oils, and sometimes with watercolor, in a realistic style, painting from both life
and photo references. My favorite subjects are landscapes and portraits.
