Prairie Sky

Happy Earth Week!

In honor of Earth Day on April 22nd, the Daily Palette is celebrating earth-friendly art all this week. We are honoring Iowa-connected artists who show respect for our planet through their work.

Prairie Sky, acrylic, 12" x 24", 2014

The artist shares, "I was born in Ashcroft, British Columbia, Canada and became a naturalized US citizen in 1999.  I received my BA from the University of Northern Iowa in Art Education, where I was awarded a free tuition art scholarship for my last two years.  I completed my MA from Western Illinois.  I taught art in the Davenport School District from 1980-2013."

About her work:

The tall grass prairie is an irreplaceable tapestry of plant and animal life.  I paint dynamic compositions of Midwest prairie remnants so that the viewer can appreciate and see the need for their maintenance before they are lost forever.
