biopicI have sketched and painted my entire life. I got in trouble in elementary school for drawing on my blotter during class! As a teenager, I won an award in high school and again later, as a young adult, when I studied at the Montreal Museum of Art. I then chose a career as a clinical psychologist, raised three children, and my art was put on hold. I moved from Palo Alto, California to West Linn 6 years ago and, while I still enjoy a part time private practice as a therapist, have returned to my love of painting. I have joined a group of artists who paint and display their work at Sharon Stevenson’s Cowgirl at Heart studio in Milwaukie.
