I grew up in International Falls, Minnesota, attended Graceland College in Iowa and in 1962 married my husband Richard Switzer. In 2010 my husband presented me with canvasses, an easel, brushes and paints. Having never painted or drawn before, I joined the Little Egypt Art Center in Marion, IL. With the help of the artists there and the classes they provided, I found myself really enjoying painting while also meeting some amazing new friends. I now participate in the Art Room in Marion, and the PAPA Gallery where I continue to learn and grow.
