I started drawing from ads and cartoons in the Sunday paper when I was a kid.  At about 15 I started blowing out and painting goose eggs.  I was accepted to art school in Minnesota but life interrupted that education.  Growing up I tried different types of art such as clay pottery, ceramics, but mostly drawing.  I graduated, got a job and had kids.  When my kids were old enough and out of the house I picked up my pencils, charcoals and paints and once again began my artistic journey.

I have worked on a few murals (the first one at home when I was 16), alot of painting pictures on canvas and rocks.  I began taking my art to craft shows about 7 years ago until covid hit the region. 

I enjoy trying new crafts such as braided rag rugs, black out poetry, abstract painting, diamond art etc.  I joined the Guild a little more than a year ago and have enjoyed the companionship and learning new types of art along with the other members.
