Patch of Blue

I have always had an urge to create.As a young nine year old girl, my interest was piqued when I received a sketchbook for my birthday. As I began to sketch, I found art instruction drawing school aptitude tests that would appear in the back pages of magazines. When they asked “Can you draw this turtle or this pirate”. Believe me I did, over and over again.

After 30 years working in the Black Hills Gold industry, where I had the opportunity to create several unique designs. I now have more time for my own artistic journey. I find my work to be quite eclectic in nature, including acrylics, colored pencils, pencils, ink, polymer clay and mixed media.

I am trying something new all the time. Always believing that there is a bright blue patch in every bit of gray sky. “ You just need to capture it”.
