Three lifetimes in art is what 50 years signifies to me. The first lifetime was the early years in art education, actually graduating (after seven years,) with a BFA from the Chicago Art Institute. When I applied to Graduate School at Northern Illinois University I became the only art student admitted and approved for their Masters of Art degree without ever attending a class! During the 70’s I established a career in Printmaking. Loyola University hired me as an Adjunct Professor and I began teaching one month after graduation. I was part of the founding of the fledgling art department and over the years I ran the gallery, taught Drawing, Life Drawing, Printmaking, Color, Design, Pre-Columbian Art & Archaeology and Women in Art History. During the 70’s and 80’s, I was a flaming Feminist, marching and braless for women’s rights in art and life. I helped found the Women’s Studies Department at Loyola wrote grants and even directed it for a year. In the late 70’s I joined ARC co-op Gallery, (a women’s gallery) and established a second career as a paper-maker and bookbinder, echoing my Dad’s job at Kimberly Clark. My first exhibit at the co-op, sold out to Gillman Gallery in Chicago. My prints and paper works have been purchased by Rockford Museum, Northern Illinois University, The Women’s Museum, Illinois State Museum and Byer Museum. During the late 70’s my paper works were displayed in a solo exhibit at the Bergstrom Museum in Neenah. In addition to art, traveling has been my focus with many trips to Mexico some of which I was a co-tour director/teacher for Loyola’s summer program. Other tour director trips were to Egypt (with a minor I earned at Loyola in Ancient History,) along with trips to Europe and China. My first husband, John Wantz and I parted ways during the protracted illness my Dad suffered with Spinal Cancer. Husband #2, Omer Clarysse introduced me to the second phase of my life with a causal trip to Fountain Hills, Arizona—it changed my life. The desert vistas and monsoon sunsets became my painting passion. After 22 years as an Associate Professor with the University, I told Loyola I was intending to leave, but got cold feet and commuted between Arizona and Chicago for three years, finally leaving in 1993. Omer and I built a huge home in Fountain Hills complete with a studio. I reinvented my life and creativity as I became an Artist in Residence at the Phoenix Center, also the President of Arizona Women’s Caucus of Art for 4 years, along with lecturing and moderating panels at the College Art Association in Seattle, Boston and New York. The 13th year of marriage, Omer contracted Pancreatic Cancer, dying in 9 months. This ushered in 3 of the hardest years of my life with family disputes over the Will, the home selling out from under me after two weeks on the market, a garage sale from Hell and Mom’s decline. The third part of my life was the accidental meeting of my current, wonderful, husband Bill Waldie while we were both studying to be Catholics. Bill saved me during the terrible period. We married in 1999 and together we have built a great life beginning with Bill’s survival of serious heart issues, his family bonding together while Bill was in the hospital to move and settle us in our great, new home, and the start of my 12 years as an Adjunct Professor at Mesa Community College teaching Color and Design. The experiments I conducted in new art media at the Phoenix Center paid off with a new career in painting and etching on black clay board depicting my beloved desert landscapes. My Paintings are part of the Fountain Hills Community Center and City Hall art collections. Bill and travel monthly to the Sedona Arts Center in Northern Arizona. The Center has been a fantastic selling organization for me with exhibits and commissions. Bill has become my business partner cutting mats, framing my paintings and the most positive promoter of my work. I’m back in a co-op gallery, this one in Fountain Hills and I am painting up a storm to prepare myself for a September exhibit at Sedona’s Art Center. Physically my spine is crappy, but I keep plugging along, grateful for the challenges and blessings along the way and especially Bill, the best blessing of all.

Happily married for 47 years. (eccl.4:12). Two married children have blessed us with 4 grandsons (2 from each family). We've done some traveling; Canada, Prince Edward Island, Arizona, South Carolina, Texas & Acapulco. I retired from my medical office position and find there aren't enough hours in the day to accomplish all I'd like to. Active in my church and citizenship organizations. Enjoy reading, playing my piano and most of all, being Grandma to my grandsons. I'm thankful to my Lord & Savior for all my blessings.

After graduating from Carroll College with an art major, I moved to Chicago-no job, no money. My first job was working at Marshall Fields in the credit department. Later I went to Harris Bank where I worked for 36 years working my way up from the credit department to personal banker to credit products manager and eventually to Vice President. I left the bank in 2003 to work with my husband, Jim in his law office.
Jim, a patent and trademark attorney, trained me to be an IP Paralegal which is what I still do today. We work together out of our home office-no more office politics, no more long commute and I get to sleep with the boss. We enjoyed living in Chicago and took advantage of what the city had to offer. We have been able to travel to Germany, and U.K. and cruises to Alaska and down the Danube. Jim has two daughters, one is disabled with bi-polar disease and the other is divorced with three boys. We moved to Woodstock, IL in 2005 to be nearer to his oldest daughter and help with our grandchildren. We have had a great time and Jim is still the love of my life and my best friend.

I had never used a big round urinal before but the men's facility was just remodeled and I was a bit nervous as the "Guest Speaker" to launch the new factory in Campbellsville, KY. I wished they hadn’t hyped my visit so much. Then, the doors burst open and about 50 factory workers came in to get ready for the meeting... and saw me there, taking care of business. I heard them laughing as they went through one of the stainless steel panels in the wall... to the main bathroom. Some headed for the "sink" I was using...and washed their hands! That was embarrassing but not as bad as when I stood to address the plant workers and those very men were in the front row, laughing at the "Big Shot" from New York. Yet the week wasn't over for me. On Saturday, I had been invited to attend a benefit for The Hunger Project. Being from Neenah, I wasn't attuned to the ways of the Philadelphia social scene, so had taken my invitation to a local haberdashery and asked them to dress me appropriately. I had thought "tuxedo" but they laughed and set me up with white bell-bottom trousers, a blue and white striped oxford shirt, a navy knit tie, and a formless navy hopsack sports jacket and snappy black loafers. My date and I arrived in our little silver sports car and the attendant took the keys. As we walked in, my date was getting all the stares...and she was a beautiful blonde model... so I thought little of it. As I entered the room, I noticed even the waiters were in black tuxedos! Everyone was formally dressed. I headed for a back table, when my friend, the only face I knew, ushered me to the front where I was seated with the likes of John Denver, Harry Chapin, Valerie Harper, Judith Light, and Raul Julia. Everywhere there were TV and movie personalities... and David in what looked like a yachting outfit! Everyone commented on how great I looked.. of course... and Raul Julia stood, banged his champagne flute and announced... "May I introduce the Best Dressed Man of the Evening, David McKellips!" I cannot describe the shade of red I turned and when I met any of that group at later events, they all remembered me as "the guy in the sailor suit!"

I've had a very conventional 50 years since 1961. After earning the required degrees, I taught university college English literature courses until it became clear that the jobs I wanted would have required a commuter marriage. James, meanwhile, established himself as a mathematics professor and entered local politics when we settled in PA. I went on to other projects, such as helping to institute, and then run for 30 years, a Victorian Christmas celebration here in town; taking up ongoing maintenance/ restoration of our 1907 Queen Anne house (I strip with the best!); becoming a good enough gardener (mostly of the seat-of-the-pants variety) to be on a couple prestigious garden tours; and contributing to cal historic preservation efforts. Not very exotic ---- but we did have one almost-hippie summer that we now think of as the best adventure ever, and one that we experienced at the just the right age. In 1970 we took what could have been a house down payment and went to Europe for three months with a brand new MGB and no set itinerary. It was perspective altering. I can look back and say "Whatever I expected, and achieved--or didn't--I'm satisfied with where I am now."
