When I was a youngster, happiness was a brand new box of crayons.  I took delight in every color, the more, the merrier.

I majored in commercial art and graphic design at Colorado State University, Ft. Collins, graduating in 1967.  I then married Jim, a career Air Force officer, whose assignments took us from Mississippi to Alaska to Germany and Denmark.  Throughout those years I became more and more interested in the fine arts, especially the Impressionist painters. Mentors and instructors Iíve admired include Jeanne MacKenzie, Greg McHuron, Ralph Oberg, Kay Stratman, Skip Whitcomb, and Kathy Wipfler.  In 2010 I discovered a new passion: oriental brush painting.

Having lived in a wide variety of areas as a child and later as an Air Force wife, I feel fortunate to be at home in one of the most beautiful places on the planet. We built our home at the head of Boulder Lake at the base of the Wind River Mountains, WY, and can jump on our ponies and ride the Bridger-Teton Wilderness trails which are just outside our door. I canít imagine anything better.

I am a long-standing member of Mixed Media artists, Sublette County Artistsí Guild,  and the Wyoming Artistsí Association in which I held all offices including that of  president and hosted the annual WAA convention in Pinedale in 1997. In 2010, I was chosen Grand Wyoming Artist by the Wyoming Artistsí Association.

Thank you for visiting this website.  I hope you enjoy it.
