A native of Texas, Hazel had been a resident of northern California since 1945, living many years in Marin County at Belvedere and Ross. She lived full time at the Sea Ranch for the past 25 years and had 2 one-man shows at the Sea Ranch Lodge. My beloved mother Hazel passed away in November 2012. The collection of her paintings is offered to all in her honor.
Prior to coming to northern California, she studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and the Art Institute of Chicago . She was employed as a fashion artist in Chicago after graduation, and continued in the commercial field in San Francisco, Sacramento , and Fresno. She continued studies in California with watercolor painters including George Post and Richard Yip. Other studies included print making at the College of Marin and the University of California Extension in San Francisco.
For over fifteen years she represented the late Richard Yip in Marin county organizing his annual workshops.

Her most outstanding award was the Medal of Honor ( Best in Show ) in 1975 at the Richard Yip show in San Francisco. Her painting was selected by Juror Alexander Nepote from over nine hundred paintings in the show.
She has done many personalized drawings for homeowners in Marin and at the Sea Ranch. The original drawing was used to make note cards. These are called H-NOTES.
