My name is Helen Knecht. I have been drawing and painting for about 45 years. Through local and online art classes, along with a few college classes, my illustrative and impressionistic style evolved. My art/craft room is very small, but is filled with my favorite things. It quickly gets messy, so I use my big dining room table as my workspace. The sliding door allows a lot of light and fresh air to enter the room, and on nice days I use the table on my deck. I teach art to Elementary kids in an after-school enrichment program. I love life with my husband of 50+ years. Our greatest joy is being with our son and daughter, their spouses and two grandkids.
