I joined Omaha Artists, Inc. the month after I retired. Family and Faith have provided my emotional and spiritual foundations through life these many years, including struggles, losses, and successes along the way. With the opportunity I now have to order my life according to my own priorities, I pursue a love of Art that was with me all along, but which formerly took a back seat to other demands.
My background includes majoring in Fine Arts for three years at UNL, working as a graphic artist for Lincoln and Omaha Public School districts, being a stay-at-home-mom, working in our family-owned commercial photo lab, Midwest Photo Co., and serving as secretary in the Special Education office of the Omaha Public Schools. For the past decade, I painted with Loess Hills Plein Air Artists, when I could take off time from work, and recently with Omaha Plein Air Artists. I've been recognized with a Peoples' Choice Award at Paint the Bluffs 2017, a Judge's Recognition and a First Place entry at two 2019 OAI art shows, and an Honorable Mention (Fourth Place) at Catiri's Fresh Paint 2019 in Amana, IA. I’m now working to expand my technical skills and methods. Each artistic endeavor is an adventure. I ask for the L-rd’s blessing and even participation, and am surprised by how each project turns out.
I hope you like what you see on my page, as much as I love what I see on the pages of my friends here at Omaha Artists, Inc.
