I am also a member of the Duluth Art Institute, Lake Country Pastel Society, the MENSA Society, the Colored Pencil Society of America and the Elk River Area Arts Alliance.
I was born in Duluth, MN in 1942. After graduating from Duluth Central HS in 1960, I attended the University of Minnesota Duluth. In 1963, I moved to Minneapolis with my family and worked at several advertising agencies. In 1976, I established and co-owned the design firm of Radosevich, Mayer and Associates. In 1982, after dissolving my company, I returned to Duluth and joined the agency of Westmoreland, Larson and Hill. I stayed with the firm (now named WestmorelandFlint) until my retirement in 2008.
I'm thrilled to finally focus on fine art, public art and curious opportunities. For the last two years, I've traveled extensively: Alaska, Canada, New York City, Mexico, Japan, Hawaii and Austin, TX. My many experiences are reflected in the pieces for my next one woman show (to be announced).
in 2010 I started participating in local art exhibitions, juried shows and calls for public art. I designed my first terrazzo floor and am exploring other creative media. I've been very honored to be recognized for my efforts and artwork.
