From the artist’s brochure:

Darlene’s introduction to the world of art started during her preschool years when she was taught to draw stick figures. While in grade school, she won a first place award in a Cook County, Illinois Safety First competition and was accepted into the gifted artist program at the University of Illinois. Her logo won a scholarship at the Chicago Art Institute’s School of Design.

Workshops with John C. Pellew, Zoltan Szabo and Lucille Williams; travel throughout the United States and parts of Mexico and Canada created a fascination with landscapes in watercolor. She also works in graphite, acrylic, mixed-media and pastels.

A working artist, her original paintings are exhibited in many galleries and are found in private collection as far as away as Germany, Japan, Australia and South America.

A member of several art associations, Darlene was honored with a lifetime signature membership in the West Suburban Artists’ Guild of Illinois. Awards include: Best of Show; People’s Choice; many ribbons from local, national and international competitions.
