I am a Rockford native and have loved art all my life. Once retired, I was able to expand and explore my interest in a variety of mediums. I enjoy watercolor, mixed media, tangling with pen, drawing with pencil and using pastels. My pieces have included, whimsy and realism, some with political and social commentary. Being artful and having fun is what I do. I thank my family and friends for encouraging and supporting me while I’m on this crazy journey.
