Being a native of Mountain View, I had the privilege of growing up experiencing nature at its finest.  I loved my natural surroundings and included objects from nature in my early art.  I loved to paint natural objects but then add a different ‘spin’ to them, using unusual colors and techniques.  After teaching school for 33 years, I wanted to get back to my creativity, so I joined the Mountain View Art Guild.  My first Art Guild sponsored class was with Ann Snyder.  Ann inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and make a mess!  She taught me to loosen up and use color creatively.  Being a part of the Art Guild has been such a blessing.  It has exposed me to so many artistic styles and new ideas.  The Art Guild has also allowed me to meet new friends with a common interest…ART!
