When people ask me where I get my ideas, I usually answer that I look for scenes that speak to me. When I make a painting, I hope it conveys a message to those who view my art. Many of my paintings have paths in them, reflecting my art journey.I always loved to draw but I had no formal art training until I was a senior in high school.  My first class was in watercolor and the results were disappointing. In college I took oil painting class with an excellent instructor and had much better results. I then switched colleges and studied interior design and worked as a designer for a few years. Eventually I received a degree in graphic design and was employed as a designer for many years at the University of Notre Dame.  In retirement, I returned to my first love, fine art. Soon I discovered the vibrant medium of soft pastels and haven’t looked back. Over the years, I have become known for my pastel landscapes, street scenes and architecture, but I sometimes revisit watercolor and reflect on my high school days when art was not the joy it is now.Today, I continue my art journey through workshops and a weekly studio session where I exchange ideas and techniques with fellow pastel artists and enjoy the challenges and camaraderie that art provides.I show my work in area art fairs and regional exhibits with Northern Indiana Pastel Society, Northern Indiana Artists, Inc., and annually at Circa Arts Gallery, South Bend, Indiana. AwardsFirst Place Award for my pastel painting of the Marshall County Courthouse in Plymouth, Indiana.
