I was raised on a ranch near Hot springs, South Dakota and attended South Dakota State University majoring in Art. I represented South Dakota in the Miss America Pageant in 1971 where my 6' x 8' oil painting of an eagle was part of my dramatic talent presentation. My husband Tom and I have been married since 1972, we have 3 children, 11 grandchildren and 1 great grandson.
I use many different mediums, such as oil,acrylics, colored pencils and pastels. The subject and the emotion dictates which medium I use.
I have always had a love and appreciation for nature and wildlife which are the subject of most of my artwork.
