About the Juror
Born in Iowa and raised in Wisconsin, I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1964. Six years later, I arrived in Alaska to teach art at Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka. It was there that I found my voice as an artist. I learned about Native Culture and village life through the eyes of my students. I’ve been painting Alaska and Alaskans for 45 years. It is the people: their traditions,their work and play, their cultures and their humor that interest me most. Painting in transparent watercolor, I show my paintings and prints at various galleries around Alaska and the Northwest.
I have illustrated 16 Children’s books, completed two books about my work and have designed 3 collections of fabric for quilters.
