Original Digital Painting and Calligraphy
I have been doing art since I could hold a crayon. When I got to college, I majored in art, even though I had no formal training in high school. I competed with very talented kids, knowing every assignment would take a lot of revisions. Teaching art was my chosen career. My Master's degree in Art Education is from University of Illinois, and my doctorate. Carnegie-Mellon University. I was the first woman in the US to be awarded the John D. Rockefeller III Fellowship for doctoral studies in art.
My life as a teacher, from Kindergarten through college, has been fun and rewarding. Remembering my undergraduate experience, I determined to always be aware of the learning level of each student. I have written two art books:" Edit; Life is What you Edit in and Out", a high school textbook, and "Preschool Art: from Scribbling to Self-Esteem" for teachers, parents, and grandparents--available on Amazon. There you will also find my DVD: "Learn Italic Calligraphy". While I wasn't teaching, I was creating. That's what you see here. Now in my late 70's, my life is still colorful and creative!
