Happy New Year!

I think most of you know me, but for those who do not, I will introduce myself. I am originally from Eureka IL where I raised a family of four. I started drawing at a very early age but was a senior in high school when I took my first art class. Jo Ann Bell was very instrumental in teaching me watercolor. She was a very dear friend.

I got my associates’ degree in graphic design from ICC and had a career as art designer/director in Peoria. I’ve been a member of the league since the early eighty’s and held board positions.

I know I will not fill the shoes of Leslie and Jackie. They did a marvelous job for two years as co-presidents. The board is thankful for their continued service.
