“CHASING YOUR DREAMS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS THAT CAN BE TAUGHT TO OUR CHILDREN—AND AS AN ARTIST, I THRIVE TO DO JUST THAT.” — GW

Gretchen wants to do her small part in making the world a better place and believes she can do this through art. She strives to improve the opportunities for our future generations of artists by supporting her current and past students through a variety of ways.

ABOUT US

It all started in my grandmother’s kitchen sharpening crayons with butter knives for coloring contests at local stores in Eden, New York. Bobcha (Grandma) would bring home candy telling me I won first prize every time. She passed when I was nine and I somehow knew to keep her spirit alive I would continue coloring. I printed my own coloring books at age 8, sold a painting at 16, and opened my first art teaching studio at 25.

I attended Art school at Alfred University and received my MA at Buffalo State College. At my final critique my professor explained, “I’ll see your work in a museum some day!” In 2014 I moved to San Diego, California from Buffalo, New York to become a full time artist after nearly a decade of teaching art in the classroom.
