“Moving back to a small lake on the dairy farm I grew up on south of Vining, MN, I've long been surrounded and inspired by nature, farm life, and people.

Years ago, I taught art in a school
classroom, more recently, I've been teaching workshops. The techniques and mediums I have concentrated on developing are oil pastel, watercolor with gouache, watercolor batik ( layering melted wax and watercolor on rice paper), drawing and calligraphy.

Working on compositions I find peaceful and interesting gives me a sense of anticipation, and at the same time, brings comfort and enjoyment. I love seeing what develops on a blank surface! Hopefully, these feelings flow through to the viewer. Artwork has become something I can't not do.”

There will be an artist reception on Friday, September 13, from 3-5pm.
