My mother once told me that I started to draw as soon as I could hold a pencil. I have no memory of that, but I do remember that during those years, art was all I thought about.
Growing up in the Appalachian hills of Southern Ohio, delighting in drawing and painting at an early age, Apple received artistic support from creative and loving parents. Awarded a scholarship to the Columbus College of Art & Design in 1964 was the first step of a life-loving journey into the creation of art.
Always seeking new ideas and experiences led Apple to France, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Mexico, Canada and the U.S.A. southwest. Over the past 40 years her work has gained international recognition being exhibited in Mexico, Canada and the U.S. A. while finding it's way into many prominent collections around the world.
Those experiences and other life changes have influenced and altered her work many times throughout her forty plus year career. She spent over nine years seeking personal answers to life, which resulted in a number of large Visionary art works titled, “Journey of the Spirit”.
Today, the technical and personal aspects of her work have merged to produce touching and whimsical images that stir the imagination and inspire the viewer to notice the little everyday moments of our life.
