I grew up with eleven siblings on a farm near Chokio, MN. We kept

entertainment simple, I drew and I sang. I spent my college years

studying for histology and medical lab exams. Marriage and soon my

family and work at Mayo Clinic and Rochester Public Schools kept me

very busy but I continued drawing and singing. I discovered fluid

acrylics several years ago. There are limitless ways to move fluid paint, embellish and express the joy and life around me. My paintings

emphasize earth, sky, nature, and love of water; very organic. My

connection to the world around me continues. My studio is in

Rochester although you may find me near the water of Ottertail Lake.

I currently exhibit at Gallery 24, 609 N Broadway, SEMVA Gallery in the

Kahler Hotel on the mezzanine level. You may also see a few pieces at

125 Live from time to time.
