When I retired, my co-workers gave me a beautiful wood easel, along with a set of paints and brushes. With those gifts, I began to rediscover my love for art.
Since then I have been taking classes at the Joslyn Art Museum, as well as attending workshops and art retreats. I am also a docent at Joslyn.
Most of my work is in acrylic and pastels.
I live in Fort Calhoun with my husband, Tim, who is an avid gardener. We live on several acres in the country surrounded by trees, gardens, native grasses and wild flowers.
When I first began painting, I often found it difficult to choose a subject. Until one day, when my teacher and mentor, Jean Mason, told me to just paint what I love. I now find inspiration in our home, our gardens and in the images of my family.
