Asst. Registrar/"moonlight" Egg Artist
I discovered the joy of egg painting and decorating in 1979 when Clara Lee, a friend and local egg artist gave me a decorated egg for Christmas. I was awed by its beauty and intricate detail. Never did I think I could produce egg art so exquisite. With never ending patience, she shared the joy of egg artistry. Although I work a full-time job at a local college, egg painting is my passion. I come home evenings (and weekends) to "relax" in the egg room. My husband and 3 dogs have learned to live around my "egg stuff." For over 30 years, I've painted almost anything and everything on eggshells from quail to ostrich. I especially love painting pets from photographs. And when time allows I enjoy creating cut designs in Faberge style. An eggshell is a versatile canvas that can be transformed into anything a creative mind can dream up.
