Thelma Hauge has lived in Washington all her life. At a very young age she loved creating art. While in high school she was encouraged by her art teacher to become a professional artist. As with so many of us, life got in the way. After raising a family and retiring from two careers she has returned to art.
Thelma teaches oil painting and pastel both here in the store and also at her studio near Ryderwood. Her students encompass all ages and skill levels. Primarily a landscape artist in the beginning, she has expanded her skills to include portraits, murals, still life and others. Several works now reside in other countries as well as other states and local admirers have purchased many pieces.
Thelma welcomes new students and can be contacted through our store or by calling her studio at (360)295-3488.
