Ronnette Vande Krol Member Since March 2010 Artist Statement As a current Arizona artist, art has enhanced my life throughout. This has included many forms, mediums, and techniques. As a child, I found myself using nontraditional medium such as finger painting with melted crayons on heated tin. In teen years, an easel was always available and my investigation continued in traditional and nontraditional tools, mediums, and techniques. Returning to school at a later age, I graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor of Science Degree, and an Art major. Having been both student and teacher, I have entered various competitions, won numerous awards, and continue to enjoy the arts, both as an artist and as a viewer.
