I’ve been taking art lessons over many years: Cornish School of Art in Seattle, WA, Minnetonka Center of Art in Minnetonka, MN, Edina School of Art in Edina, MN, New Smyrna Center for Arts, New Smyrna, FL, the Arts Alliance in Fort Myers, FL. Art runs in my blood, as my father was a successful commercial artist who supported six kids and a housewife in a middle-class lifestyle, and my brother was a very talented metal sculptor.
My art reflects my joy in life. I had an idyllic childhood growing up in an island called “Park Point” on Lake Superior. I had a wonderful job as an international flight attendant and in-flight manager for a major airline, a job that left me plenty of time to pursue my artistic interests.
