The high school I attended in Omaha (Central HS) was located right across the street from Joslyn Museum. Every afternoon after classes, and even on Saturdays, I would go through the museum, and spend hours with all the art. It was such a beautiful, serene place that I was constantly drawn there to browse and wander through the beautiful works of art. I would sit and loosely sketch some of the things that truly inspired me. I had a wonderful art teacher who always gave me encouragement, no matter how bad my art was. Once I got out of school and started working I just didn't have any time to pursue drawing and painting. After I moved to California I was able to make time to pursue my passion of art, and began to teach myself by spending a lot of time drawing and painting in the late '60's and '70's.
When I started working again I found there was no time to work, take care of my family, and paint. I didn't begin painting again until early 2010 when I retired. Since then, I have taken numerous art classes, and have found a real love for creating paintings in Pastels. I especially love the processes used in painting animals. I also work in oil pastels, oils, acrylics, and watercolors. I am a member of the Associated Artists of the Inland Empire, and am currently on the Board of Directors, as Editor of the Associations Newsletter, and IT Administrator.
