I am an artist and photographer who has a love affair with color and people finding them to be interesting, fascinating and the best means to create evocative drawings or photographs.
I have trained my eyes to see and my heart to be alive with expression.
I was born in Hartford, WI, the twelfth of thirteen children, graduated Cum Laude from UW-Whitewater with a BAE in Art and teacher certification. It feels good to have successfully raised my family, including homeschooling them until they attended college.
In 2004, I resumed
working more intimately with my art and photography, I was privileged to have
several solo gallery shows and have completed commissioned pastel work. I work
with pastels and oil paints and enjoy making fine art, portrait, and lifestyle
photography. I hold a variety of
photography workshops, called “Meet Your World.”
My limited edition fine art prints and original pastels are for sale and I am always booking location portrait and lifestyle sessions and open to commissioned work. Currently I am putting together my first inspirational photography book.
I believe, when you immerse yourself in art it transcends all barriers. Art in its truest form is an expression of emotions and impressions and leads those who appreciate it on the path to reflect upon and be inspired by their own interactions within life.All work is for sale and all offers considered.

I recently returned from a trip to New Orleans and with Mardi Gras coming to that city soon, it was filled with all sorts of wonderful sights. This month I've included several choices from New Orleans and, I'd be remiss if I didn't also include a Panama Ci...
