I began painting with watercolors after I retired from teaching elementary students. I read and experimented, and then began attending workshops and painting at the Holland Area Arts Council with a group of artists who have been very instrumental in my growth as an artist. A few years later, I joined the a group of Zeeland Artists whom I am also excited to be working with and learning from. Painting has taught me to look at the world differently. I am more aware of color, shadow, light and texture and am always excited to stumble upon potential paintings. I have been in many juried art competitions and exhibits including the Michigan Watercolor Society, Muskegon Regional, First Church spriitual show in Grand Rapids, MI, the Grand Haven, MI winter show, the Holland Regional and Mi Arts shows. My watercolors and oils can be found at the Zeeland Artists Gallery in Zeeland, MI, Studio 2 in Montague, MI and in The Red Chair Gallery and studio in Zeeland. I am a huge proponent of the arts and a big believer in their importance in the life of every person!
