About the Artist
After a hiatus of more than 30 years, I began painting in oils in 2014 at a work team building event. I have rheumatoid arthritis, use a power wheelchair, and work on smaller canvases which I can comfortably reach. I am drawn to landscapes and images which are colorful and which exude energy and light. Oil painting is soothing and while I don't get as much time as I'd like with it, when I do I can find hours go by in the flow of creativity. I also dabble in photography, love to be out in nature in the spring, summer and fall. When not painting, I am an avid reader, Food Network watcher and Minnesota Twins fan.
