Grand Rapids, MI, United States

After retiring from corpAmerica and ramping up a full time studio, I have made the commitment to dedicate my life, my heart & soul to my art and of course my husband, Wally. I had studied Fine Arts at Wayne State University and University of Michigan, but as a result of corporate obligations, set art aside. Upon retirement, I picked it up again, joyfully, taking classes at Kendall School of Design. I am currently exploring figurative, architectural, and plein air landscape abstractions. I am obsessed with color and value. I absolutely adore mixing a myriad of brillant paint with gel and textures with brush and pencil movements across the canvas. It is important to me at this point of my life to observe the world within my being, to see and feel in my heart and awaken to the gift from the Creator given to me.
