I have taught art privately starting in 1981 in the San Luis Valley.
I started teaching art classes again in Beulah in 2001 and in 2008 I moved into Pueblo where I continue to teach two weekly classes as well as one Saturday class a month at my studio.
I currently offer several levels of classes at my studio here in Pueblo. My primary medium is Pastel although I recently opened up my classes to mid to advanced level oil painters.
I have been a part of the Steel City Art Works gallery since it’s inception almost 5 years ago.
I started studying art in 1963 at a local art guild. In 1968 I attended the Newark School of fine and industrial arts in Newark, New Jersey and followed that with a few years at the Rocky Mt. School of Art in Denver.
Teaching art is as much a passion for me as painting is.
I was born in 1950 in Newark New Jersey and moved to Colorado in 1970. I gave birth to a daughter, Jesse, in 1981 in Del Norte, Colorado and feel that even though I was not born here I am as close to a native as a person can get who was from elsewhere.
My mother was a painter, my grandmother and my great grandmother were fiber artists, my daughter is also a fiber artists. Art runs strong in the blood of the women of my lineage.
