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.
