“I recently retired after 34 years of teaching, and have rediscovered my love of painting. I have painted using acrylics since I was a child, and studied art in college. Over the last 30 years I have periodically taken painting lessons from some of the best local artists in Palmer. Since the pandemic I’ve had more than enough time on my hands to work on my art. I am an avid hiker and skier. I spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying Alaska, and hope to do much more traveling around the world in the near future.
“My work is almost always in acrylic. I enjoy using vivid colors and trying to create an emotion through my art. Many of my paintings are of landscapes of places that I have visited. I also enjoy painting animals and creating texture in their fur. I have not had a public display of my artwork since high school and am excited about the prospect of showing my art to others.”
