Multi-media and oils artist, Ebbie has been producing artwork all of her life. She grew up surrounded by many of her namesake grandmother's rich oil paintings of her home, Stockholm, Sweden. She went on to study art as a specialty class in high school. In college she received a Masters in Science with a minor in fine arts with an emphasis on ceramics from the University of North Dakota. She has been a member of an artist association in every state she served in as a nurse and air force wife and often draws on those memories of beautiful places visited and called home throughout the years.
