After thirteen years as a program coordinator for St. Michael’s Day School, with a specialty in Special Education, and having raised three children, I started creating art in my middle years. One Christmas, my husband bought me a book called ‘Watercolor for the Artistically Undiscovered’. It was printed on watercolor paper and had a palette of paints built in at the base of the book. It took several months and much coaxing to open it and begin painting, but since that first day, I have lived and looked at life differently. The colors are brighter, the contrasts deeper and my joy is greater. I began working with a palette knife and oils in 2004 with a great teacher named Milisa Valliere. Through the years, I have studied with many teachers in the Kansas City and Lawrence areas and have attended many workshops brought to our area by nationally renowned artists and teachers.
