1937 – 2014

As a small child I lived on a farm on the Olympic Peninsula. Being the youngest of three daughters, my early memories are of entertaining myself by drawing and painting. When I was nine we moved to Henrietta, Texas. After graduation, I attended Harbor Junior College in California, majoring in Commercial Art. I finished my education at Southern Oregon University with a degree in Education and a minor in Art.

Art has always been a important part of my life, the wonder of creating is so exciting. I love to experiment with different media. I have worked in oil, pastel, pen and ink, and colored pencil but watercolor is now my favorite. I was blessed with a husband who shared this love of watercolor. We would often critique each others work and would always travel with our paints and cameras ready to catch that special image we could then express in our own way with paints and paper.
