Comments From the Artist: I have been a lifelong artist at heart. Yet, it’s only in the past couple of years, since I am semi-retired, then finally retired, that I’ve found time to really pursue my passion – depicting the earth’s riches, primarily in floral paintings and landscapes. Watercolor and pastels have been my preferred media in the past several years, and both give me a great, yet rewarding, challenge.
I welcome all thoughts and comments, as well as suggestions as to how I might improve my work.
I grew up in Monroe, Wisconsin, and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. A former magazine editor and writer, I lived most of my adult life in New York City and Aspen, Colorado, before returning to my roots in Wisconsin, where I was a public relations counselor in Madison until my retirement in September 2007.
