I am an artist who draws daily. Drawing is how I celebrate life’s beauty and navigate it’s challenges. I have painted on silk for 35 years. My pieces for our Themed projects include drawings and painted silks. My Narrative Medical Drawing evolved from documenting my late husband.s health issues. My Projects at Hennepin HealthCare (Minneapolis) include: Drawing through Crisis with Courage and Humor (August - October 2017) and Drawing a Day in the Life at HHC which was made into posters and a Staff Calendar. I am developing other Narrative Medical Drawing projects there. I taught elementary school art for 38 years. Now I teach art/music at Episcopal Homes (St. Paul) and lead a weekly poetry group at The Waters in Highland Park (St Paul).
