Art: Studies on water

Trained by my folkartist grandmother and art major mother, my love for art shifted from childhood sketches of horses to soft watercolors and impressionistic acrylic on canvas. Now as a doctoral student in Community and Environmental Sociology, I experience my artwork as yet one more opportunity to study the relationship between people and place. My acrylic pieces, “Studies on water” reflect my love affair with the whimsical moods and wild blues of Lake Monona in Madison, WI.
