Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI. I have been drawing horses since 5 years of age. Started in oils when I entered high school in 1963. Have worked with Pen & Ink, Pastels, Oils, and misc. But I prefer Acrylics, as they still present a challenge. I don't paint just to sell, I paint & create to get these deep feelings and ideas out of my soul and onto the canvas.
Left Milwaukee behind and moved up north in 1974. I have a great family support system, (father, mother, husband, daughters).We built the 3-room gallery in 1997 to display my artwork and love of antiques, sleighs & buggies. Raised and showed American Saddlebreds for 30 year with my husband and youngest daughter. I am a mother of 3 lovely daughters and a grandmother to 4 wonderful grandchildren.
My husband, Rudy Henning (an artist in his own right) and I live on a working dairy farm just north of Augusta, WI. Here beauty is in the song birds that visit the feeders year round, the deer & fawns in the fresh spring grass, the turkeys & geese with their young, the trees & their changing beauty with each season. My husband has given this to me and supports my efforts in art in many ways.
