After raising my three sons now that I am retired, I am returning to my passion of art and creating. My favorite subjects to sketch can be found in the pristine beauty of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of Minnesota.
As I sketch, I feel challenged to capture the beauty of the scenery as the light changes and shadows emerge. I use sketches to show everything that the naked eye sees and camera misses. My dream is to turn these sketches from over ten years of canoe trips into painting using mixed media.
At the age of sixty I graduated from Saint Mary’s University with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. I also earned degrees in Applied Visual Arts, Graphic design Technology, and Multimedia in 2003 at Dakota County Technical College. My awards were the following, Best Graphic Design Portfolio in 2001 and Most Artistic Portfolio in 2003.
