she works in the Graphic Arts industry and enjoys painting in her studio and spending time
with other artists. Her work can be found in private homes in Missouri,
Colorado, Illinois and Tennessee as well as in the permanent collection at CBU.

Local Color is a collection of student works under the direction of Fred Rawlinson, a well-known local artist and teacher. Atelier artists were given the assignment to paint our hometown...local landmarks.

The challenge is to bring each artists' unique vision and technical approach to these familiar everyday images."
