Bernie has been studying art all of her life in one form or another from photography to oil and watercolor painting to sculpture and ceramics. She found that Oil painting was her true passion; so long ago dropped all other mediums of artistic expression. During her formal education she wanted a solid foundation in basic fine art. She attended college at a time when conceptual art was being taught when she admired Monet and the Impressionists. She found that she must study from Art History itself by visits to Museums and reading about the artists she admired. Bernie continues to study art to this day.
Her approach to creating art is with humility and thanks to God for the time, the passion and the talent to paint.
