About Us

About Our Art

Commissioned artist for ESPN, Missouri Sports Hall of Fame, Promega Corporation, MSU West Plains, PGA golfers and a host of others, Audrey brings years of professional experience to her portraits and the classroom.  Earning her Art Education degree in her home state of Wisconsin in 1979, she has taught publicly and privately for more than 30 years.

Her exquisite portraits grace the walls of homes and businesses worldwide and have been published internationally.  The ESPN portraits were unveiled on the nationally televised Skins Game in 2003 and 2004.

“I absolutely love to draw and I wholeheartedly believe everyone can learn to draw!  There is something so captivating about drawing life!  No matter how long I’ve been drawing, I’m still amazed to watch a flat piece of paper or canvas come alive!!  It’s as if life has been breathed into the work and I can feel the subject’s presence.  The journey to the end result gives me such a rush that I hurry back to do it all over again!  It is a joy to teach and share the skills I have acquired over the years to help nurture my students.”
