Here at the Ecocenter, she will display a number of her landscape paintings in a variety of media.


About the Artist:

“I grew up near Cleveland, Ohio, and took art classes at the Cleveland Art Museum, starting at age 8. By eleven I knew I wanted to be an art teacher. I graduated from Albion College with a BA in art education followed by graduate school at Purdue University with an MA in art education.

I have taught art classes for Mt. View-Los Altos School District Adult Ed, Los Altos Recreation Department, Palo Alto Recreation Department, Saint Lawrence High School, several art, craft and sewing stores, lots of non-profits, and many private lessons, for every age and every skill level. I love teaching; my students progress inspires me!

I started teaching at the Pacific Art League in Palo Alto in 1999 and joined Silicon Valley Open Studios as a board member soon after. I am still very active with these. This is my fifth year teaching at Palo Alto High School, Adult Education. I am scheduled to start teaching art at Foothill College this year. I am currently teaching watercolor, oil, acrylic and mixed-media painting.

My own prolific art work includes a wide range of paintings, sculpture, crafts, prints, jewelry, art-to-wear, and more, in unlimited styles, including realistic, abstract, mixed-media and experimental.

Landscapes and seascapes have always been a dominant interest to me. They range from beautiful and serene to dramatic and breathtaking.

I’m busier than ever. I look forward every year to showing my new work at solo shows, group shows and May’s Silicon Valley Open Studios. I was recently invited to be in the book American Artwork 2020.”
