Born and raised on a farm in Minnesota, I do not recall a time I did not enjoy drawing and “coloring”! At the age of six, I started school with a callus on my pencil holding finger. Mother died when I was 14 and being the youngest of four girls, it was off to a boarding school for me, graduating from Oak Grove Lutheran High School in Fargo, North Dakota. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota. I taught secondary education until my husband Earl and I started our family in 1961.

After exploring many media, I unleashed my true passion: transparent watercolor. I love the unpredictable results of mixing pigments on paper. The subject matter for me varies from my favorite florals, to landscapes, old buildings, people and animals. They say “paint what you love”; I love contrasts of color, value, textures and shapes. Minnesota is my native state, but have thoroughly enjoyed living in the Rogue Valley since 1973. As an active member of the Watercolor Society of Oregon and exhibiting in many National juried shows across the country, I have been honored with many awards and have earned signature membership in California Watercolor Association, Northwest Watercolor Society, Montana Watercolor Society and Western Federation of Watercolor Societies.
