Biography


    At Baldwin-Wallace College (now University), I was trained, among other things, to teach art in the elementary grades. I added design, drawing in pen and ink, which I loved; and oil painting, which I did not love.
For a few years, I taught kindergarten, where the great artists are.
 
We moved to the Pacific Northwest, where there were artists: Tobey, Graves, Tompkins, Anderson, painting right out loud.
A tiny sketchbook went every where with me, filling with tiny pen drawings. I was weaving; the color was exhilarating but the discipline of the loom made shapes I wanted to make, very difficult. Watercolor was freedom, even though I don't use it as watercolor is generally used.
And—I became a musician. I once saw a motto in a restaurant: "Art is the way music looks".
 
Workshops: with Molly Hashimoto, Northwest painter, printmaker and teacher; Michele Lester, colorist and fiber artist; Joseph Burgess, contemporary painter and sculptor.
 
Juried shows: University of Oregon; Anacortes, Kenmore, Bellevue City Hall. Eastside Fine Arts, in Washington.
2011, juried unanimously into Bainbridge Arts and Crafts Gallery, Bainbridge Island. Paintings and carda shown in Confluence Gallery, Twisp, Washington.
