“Using inspiration from my lifelong passion for nature’s beauty, I became interested in becoming an artist later in life. I didn’t discover my artistic talent until after a lifelong career as a hospital administrator, then, until I retired from my position as CEO of a significant American Red Cross chapter. I am a registered nurse, have a BS in Nursing and Psychology from Macalester College, St. Paul, MN and an MPH in Epidemiology and Public Health from the University of Minnesota., Minneapolis, MN. A few years after retiring, in 2007 I received formal beginners art training at the Minnesota School of Botanical Art and at workshops sponsored by the society to which I belong, the Great Rivers Chapter of the American Society of Botanical Art. Otherwise, I am a self taught artist.
