I became interested in painting when I saw a program on Public Television that was demonstrating painting with acrylics. I ordered the kit and have been painting ever since. My favorite medium is watercolor that allows me to explore the wonders of transparency. I enjoy painting flowers, birds, animals and nature scenes. I belong to Artists of MN and Central MN Watercolorists. I enjoy the experience of sharing ideas with fellow painters twice per week at painting groups at Whitney Senior Center.
I have taken many workshops to help me continue to grow and learn. I have illustrated a children’s book, Edgar the Near-Sighted Eagle and have displayed my work at the Paramount, Whitney Center, US Bank, Falcon Bank, The St Cloud Library and The Red Cross in St Cloud, MN. I also show my work at the Great River Regional Art Center in Little Falls. More work can be seen at mnartists.org and Fine Art America.com
