About the Artist

Welcome to Country Classic Oils.  Let me take a minute to tell you about myself.
I've lived in east central Illinois my whole life and became interested in different forms
of art at a very young age.  When I was in Jr High I began working with oils and they
became my medium of choice.   I soon learned that I preferred to paint on various
surfaces other than a canvas.  In the past I've painted on walls, floors, hats, ties, milk
cans, saws, saw blades, slate, almost anything I could touch a brush to.

While attending a Quails Unlimited banquet  I saw my first painted turkey feather and I
immediately knew that I had to try it.  Within days I had feathers in hand and began
painting.  It soon became my passion and with the help of my husband we built the
studio that I've always wanted and included a room to build frames.

Because of my love for old barns I decided to make all my frames from aged barn
wood. Each piece of wood has its own characteristics that I try to match up to the
feather.   Each feather is different as well. I often spend days looking at the different
shapes and colors of the feathers before deciding what would look best on them.

When it comes to painting I love a challenge.  I think that's why I love the feathers so
much.  I hope that you enjoy my site.  If you do like it, please pass it on to your family
and friends.
Thanks for visiting.
