I was born in Columbus Ohio. My love of art began in early childhood and presume it was aquired through ancestry; my Great Grandfather was an aetist by profession and I have a few of his pieces of art.
Although I wanted to be an artist, this was discouraged and studied nursing as a vocation. Nevertheless from childhood I was engaged in somekind of art endevoe which painting and various crafts.
In highschool and college I continued to take every opportunity to paint and doing set decoration for various playes as a means to fulfill that desire for art. While obtaining a B.S. degree in nursing, which has been my primary profession, my love was and is art. I minored in art during college and later studied at Marylhurst college in Oregon to complete my degree in fine arts but was unable to finish when my husband was transfured back to California.
I have over the years leared to do china and oil painting ,acrylics, colored pencil needlework,.quilling,.soft and hard sculpture, fabric painting, stenciling and ceramics .I like to develope new techniques and at present am experimenting with digital and pastel art.
