I am a Minnesota native, moving to Arizona in 1982. I am a self-taught artist and work in all mediums. I have taught classes for the Palo Verde Art club for almost 19 years. Currently, I have been teaching Acrylic painting. I have earned degrees in CADD drafting and Graphic Design and taught classes in the Graphic design program for 11 years before moving to Sun City. I don’t have one favorite medium; I love working in all of them.
In my Acrylic Classes, we complete a small painting each week. We study Landscapes, Animals, Still Life, Flowers, and much more. I paint a “demo” painting along with my students. Students bring the necessary supplies needed, and I provide references to work from each week. Beginners are welcome, as well as experienced artists.
