Trudy Dempsey - Portrait Artist
Art has been an important part of my life for as long as I can remember. Until I retired a few years ago, I had little time to devote to my art. I taught secondary school mathematics for thirty-one years, raised two terrific children Jeffrey and Jeanette with my husband Dale, and now I finally have the time to paint. My sister-in-law, Betty got me started with watercolour whenshe convinced me to take a painting class in North Bay one summer. The instructor, Arlie Hoffman has been a wonderful source of encouragement and inspiration.
I have also taken classes from Julia Conlon, Constance Noyle, and Linda Kemp.As a beginner in the field of watercolour I am enjoying the wonderful unexpected results of using this media.
"Without a doubt, I'm hooked and look forward to perfecting my skills and learning from all of the wonderful artists in the ARA"
