About Me

After trying all mediums, I have found my true love…Pastels!  The feel of the chalks and the rich, vibrant colors speak to me.  My Grandfather was a pastel artist and I love the connection that inspires. 

I also love teaching!

For over 30 years, I have taught all age groups from Elementary through College. I hold a BA and MA in Education.  In more recent years, I have been teaching pastel workshops to adults in Arizona.

 

I owned a pottery business in the 90’s, and showed my work in many

Colorado galleries.

 

I have been lucky enough to sell many works over the years and I am looking forward to new adventures in Pastels.
