A Colorado native I grew up 14 years in Montana but returned to Colorado to become the 1st female park ranger in Colorado Springs for 30 years. Now retired, I focus on my passion to create my own expressions in art.
My strongest interests and influences have always been in old-world cultures, ethnic art and my connection to nature.
I’ve been a member of Commonwheel 17 1/2 years.
Art has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I’ve been an active artist for around 35 years. I feel very lucky to have had a career I loved and am now able to focus full time on my art.
My art is a driving passion that makes my heart beat and feeds my soul. To create something that brings joy and happiness to myself and others is such a reward. Creating something that someone else wants to have in their life says it all. Art can also be wonderful therapy for both the artist and the recipient of one’s work.
Right now, I’m working on my wall hearts and some funny Valentine VooDoo dolls that will make you laugh. I’m also working on some pieces for upcoming found object and a garden shows that will be at Commonwheel this year.
