Ever since my beginnings in a two-room schoolhouse in the farming and ranching community of Woodrow, Colorado, I have attempted to describe my surroundings, feelings, values, and dreams visually – through artistic expression.
I love the high plains, the wide open spaces, the subtle beauty of the grasslands where I’ve lived my life. I grew up here, as did my mother, her mother, and her mother’s mother. The inspiration for my work is all right here.
My husband Myron and I share our ranchland home with 3 Angora goats, 20 chickens, 5 geese, 4 ducks, 2 ponies, 2 horses, 8 cats, 1 dog, and 3 much-loved burros. Our animals and the wildlife of the surrounding plains and grasslands provide me with ever-changing inspiration for my sculptures.
