I grew up in So. California and learned to love the Laguna art scene at an early age. Painting seemed like magic to me! Now I love anything that could be art or put into a painting. I love beaches, mountains, rocks, sunsets, children, people everywhere, animals, rocks, weds, piles of stuff....barns, old textures. I love looking at other artists and am inspired always at museums and galleries. I have a Masters in art education from BYU and taught art at Orem Jr. High for many years then retired to "do my own art." I was an exhibitor for several years at the Laguna Beach Art-a-Fair Festival. I am still learning and fear there isn't enough time left in life to learn all I need to!
Chemistry professor husband John and I live in Pleasant Grove, Ut and have a small condo in St. George. He is great to drive me to away workshops like Scottsdale Artist School and St. George. We raised 8 kids... 6 of ours and 2 foster kids. My current heros are Roland Lee, Ted Nuttall, Timothy J. Clark, J.K. Reed from New Zealand,.
