Biography and Statement
I have been doing art since 2000 after taking my first art class in pastel and loving it. Subject matter is varied, with floral, birds, animals, landscapes and water scenes. A member of the NIA and also Northern Indiana Pastel Society, I have shown in juried shows for both societies and also many other area exhibitions. I have commissioned some pictures and also sold in area shows. For a few years I co-taught a pastel class at Forever Learning and enjoyed passing on the love of the media. I do artwork for the enjoyment it brings and the wonderful feeling of accomplishment.
