Creating art has been a passion of mine since childhood. I love sharing my imagination with others, using bright, bold colors. A few of my favorite artists are Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, and Georgia O'Keefe. In 2004, I achieved one of my greatest artistic accomplishments. I wrote, illustrated, and published my first children's book, 'Hurray for the Yoder Barn!' Now that my full-time career in public relations is over, and the kids are grown, I can devote the next chapter of my life to creating art. Thank you for looking at my work. I appreciate your comments.
