I came to painting very late in life… if my adult children hadn’t pushed and signed me up at Mainstreet Art Center 10 years ago, this would never have happened. Under the magnificent wing of Susan Poughe, I retrieved a piece of myself that had been tucked away… a way to express quiet feelings about the simplest things – cornfields, animals, farmland, children. I work in oil and tend toward realism. I’ve attended many workshops, learning from Susan, Frankie Johnson, Jan Berglund and all the way to GA for John Potoschnik.
Painting, for me, happens in layers – a process not unlike all life’s journeys. In an earlier life I expressed that through writing, music and being a family counselor. This is a quieter side of me. I hope you like it.
