Although my lifelong friend and my mother practiced their artistic endeavors for decades right in front of me, I have only recently immersed myself most enchantedly in classes, workshops, art books, and the world of oil paint. For the first Gallery, I followed the instructions of Anchorage artist Don Kolstad, thus they are 'inspired by' his originals. Bruges Bridge was done earlier, as was the Armagh Cottage, inspired by photos. An oil workshop in mid-March 2012 marks my first oil class ever. Beginning Sketching/Drawing also happened that March, and any other 'training' over past decades was purely informal. but for a short design/color class in the late 80's.

Before art? A part-time music teacher/performer, I spend some parts of my days managing the 'papers and numbers' that come to me as the longtime office manager/bookkeeper for my spouse's consulting business (see and Keeping local coffee shops in business is a mission of mine, along with travel, and ever-so-happily keeping up with my all too distant ~as in far away and way too busy~ dear friends and family members.

My landing at this site indicates 2 things: I really want to share my joy of art with my friends and family, along with seeing if this might become the retirement job of my dreams. So, I ask you, esteemed viewer, what do you like, and what would you like to see more of?

Thanks for stopping by.....come again.
