My artistic endeavors began later in life, beginning with Mary Muller, Master PSA, in her Des Moines, IA Studio. I started with basic drawing and pastel. I focused on still life, then portrait, figure studies, and landscape. After building my own art studio, I launched further independently into pastels, oils and water color.
My studies in ‘Water Color’ have been with Dr. Janet Heinicke and ‘Figure Drawing’ with Jack Wilkes both at the Des Moines Art Center.
Each instructor has added to my understanding greatly.
