Retired from health administration, I have been painting for over forty years. Mediums include oils, acrylics and watercolor. Colors and textures make me happy, and my artwork includes this. Contributing to the American Lutheran Church on the liturgical committee, several of my triptychs are included in their permanent collection, rotating with the seasons. I paint on about any non-moving object, including walls and fences. Outdoor art has become my newest venue for using acrylics. Married to Gene Kinsey, former mayor of this fine city and cook extraordinare, I have two adult daughters and two fine dogs.
