Mostly Nature/Nature Landscapes, Florals and Still Life
I started to doodle in grade school much to the annoyance of all my teachers. At least in high school I could continue my craft in art class.
Advancing my education with a graphic design degree at Illinois Central College, was a great accomplishment for a small town girl from Winchester Illinois.
My employment throughout the years have included graphic designer, magazine art design/production artist, retail merchandising, sales floor manager, retail product buyer, florist designer, and assistant marketing manager. I have always had a creative side, however I had put the paint brush away for many years. Now I am enjoying getting back to the “drawing table” as it were! Reconnecting with fellow gifted artist is a wonderful inspiring experience.
My subject interests are backyard nature, flowers, wildlife, still life and landscapes. I love taking photographs and drawing what I see from those photos. “Nature coming to life on my canvas!”
I work in a variety of mediums. Photography (both photographs and digitally altered photographs), pen & ink, pencil, color pencil, marker, watercolor and acrylic.
