At four years of age, I couldn’t wait to go to school so I could have a box of “Prang” watercolors. In grade school the boys wanted my drawings of horses. In high school I had four years of art class. Then to Kansas City to work for Halls Brothers, now known as Hallmark Cards. While in Kansas City I studied at night at the Kansas City School of Commerce. After marriage I did some work with watercolors. I painted several pictures of pets and with a friend we started the first Art Fair in Atchison, Kansas.
In 1972 we moved from Kansas to Arkansas and tried several crafts. My husband and I finally settled on glass etching. We etched everything from Christmas tree ornaments to church windows. Afterwards I painted on tiles for a flooring company and etched on glass items with a diamond tool.
I started painting with pastels and joined Ozarks Pastel Society in 2001 and soon became a signature member. I have exhibited in many shows and have taken many workshops. I am currently enjoying painting in acrylics with a group of friends at the West Fork Fire Station. I’m also a member of Artists of Northwest Arkansas and exhibit my paintings at the ANA Gallery in Rogers, Arkansas.
Do unto others as your would have them do unto you.
