I am a self taught artist who was raised in North Dakota in the USA. After high school I lived in Northern California. My husband and I raised 4 children and when they all had graduated high school and left we decided to make a move to New Mexico. This is where I became the artist I am today.
I paint what I feel and see. I love color and the outdoors and I’m hoping you like what I’m doing. My art is primitive, folk art, naive but I do modern and abstract also. Call me eclectic. Recently I sold a painting that will be hanging in Wells Fargo Historical Museum. I feel really good about that! I hope you enjoy my art. If you are interested in purchasing and original contact me. do so at cruser.art@hotmail.com

I keep thinking that that perverbial lightbulb will light the way. Someday, maybe, I will finally find the path to where ever I’m going. / Monday Wells Fargo is unveiling the painting purchased for their Historical Museum…
