“In 1964-1968, we were in Alaska, my husband was in the Air Force. He gave me a box of oils for my birthday and I had no idea what to do with them. The Service Club offered art lessons for $1 for 1 night per week with a local artist. I painted for a couple of years until Bob was transferred. We came to Cheyenne in 1973 but it wasn’t until after the flood of 1985 that I joined the Cheyenne Artists Guild. I took a class called Sponges and Rags from Cheyenne artist Maryalyce Larsen. I’ve taken several workshops at the Guild and when attending the Wyoming Artists Association Conventions I would sign up for whatever was offered. I prefer painting in oil but the paintbox got too heavy to carry to the CAG loft where I painted each Thursday. I joined the Weekly Art Challenge a couple of years ago and have painted with a box of Pelikan half pans.I had a one person show at the Cheyenne Civic Center in 1994. Was honored to sell several pieces. The first time I entered the CFD Western Spirit Show, 2000, both my 16 x 20 and miniature painting were purchased. I’ve been juried into the CAG National show twice.”
