The artist wrote "An artist must always continue to be a student, never let your art knowledge stand stil1, pick up new ideas and medium, create your own style and use your imagination ... my sketch books are full of sketches made on painting trips with ideas for future use, but are rarely used without rearranging to make a better composition. Sometimes two or three sketches are combined ... a thin wash is how "STONE QUARRY" developed from sketches made from quarries of Bloomington, Bedford and Athens, Ohio." ...Majored in art at Miami University, Oxford , Ohio ... studied with several John Herron Art Institute instructors as well as with
Charles Burchfield of New York and Chapin of Chicago, all of whom have been guest artists of John Herron Art Institute ... teacher of oil, watercolor and mixed media ... member of the Hoosier Salon, Indiana Artists Club, Indianapolis Art League, Brown County Art Gallery Association, National League of American Pen Women, Herron Rental Gallery and Poets Corner. "I feel very proud to have my picture hung with the Tri Kappa Art Collection and you have helped me to reach another rung of my ladder."
