“The real voyage of discovery consists in seeing with new eyes” M.Proust
After I retired from a nursing career I pursued my lifelong love of art. My ”new
eyes” were opened in my first botanical art class. I was in love with the subtle
smallness of plants and their intricate detail and patterns. Living here in the
Geneva Lake area the quiet beauty of Mother Nature surrounds me in all seasons.
I work in watercolor, pen & ink, graphite and colored pencil My paintings have
been exhibited in Gallery 223 Lake Geneva, Racine Art Museum, Woodson Art
Museum, Carthage College, Lloyd Library in Cincinnati, Brushwood Center and
Morton Arboretum in Illinois. I coordinated and participated in the Kishwauketoe
Project 2018-2020 which received a financial grant from the American Society of
Botanical Artists. I am a member of Geneva Lake Arts Foundation, Reed-Turner
Botanical Artists, and the American Society of Botanical Artists.
