my profile photo is Brooke, my granddaughter from several years ago.
I have always been interested in drawing and painting, but with marriage, children and a full time job, as well as other interests and activities filling up my time, I could only take workshops and classes to explore my artistic side.
now that I am retired, I have a lot more time to pursue the other side of my dreams.
My desire as an artist is to explore all things creative wherever it takes me and enjoy the journey till I no longer can.
'hand in hand together we stand on the threshold of a dream.'

After 2003 I started a new creative journey landscaping my one acre home property. This continued for many years until we moved in 2014.
2014 I became involved in the White Bear Lake Art Center participating in classes and exhibitions, still current.
2017 I became fascinated with the fluid acrylic art phenomenon which has taken me beyond my traditional painting style…..and I’m loving it!
2017 consignee with the White Bear Lake Senior Center gift shop.
