Drawing came naturally to her, and she pursued art throughout high school and later graduated from Art Instruction Schools in Minneapolis, Minn. She has taken classes from several nationally-known artists and instructors as well as some well-known local artists.
“An artists never stops learning and should always be receptive to new techniques and challenges. The basis for a good painting is a good drawing. I feel God has blessed me with a gift of drawing and I want to share it with others.”
Equally versatile in oils, watercolors, pastels and woodcarving, much of Lola’s inspiration comes from her love for nature. While she paints a large variety of subject matter, she is best known for her portrayals of old tractors, steam trains, wildlife and national parks.
