What are you most proud of? I studied with a number of great teachers in the 1970s. They are well known, and if you are as old as I am you'll recognize them by name: Beverly Miller, Bill Alexander, Buck Paulson, Bob Warren, Gary Jenkins, and Lucian Lupinski. I taught oil painting classes during the 1980s and 1990s. In the 1950s every little girl wanted to be a movie star. But, I wanted to be a painter. My very first sketch was a self portrait and I made sure I had a big smile with lots of teeth showing. My sister refers to my first portrait sketch as, "ninety teeth." We still laugh about it.
