ARTIST RESUME

My interest in art started at an early age, drawing and painting were always my preferred activity, and over the years my interest and study of art has never diminished.  Now I have the opportunity to pursue this passion for painting and to be part of the vibrant art community of the Driftless Area.

I have attended several area Art Workshops and juried Art Festivals. I continue plein air painting alone and with painter friends and also paint from still life set ups in my studio.  I use photos and sketches as a basis for large landscape paintings.

Education;

AA degree from Pueblo Junior College, Pueblo, CO in 1953.

BS in Arts Letters and Science with a Fine Art Major, Highest Honors, from U. W. La Crosse in 1976.

Continuing study with local instructors.
