About Darlene

Picture above is of the artist, Darlene Skinner Zarosinski, on the Oregon Coast. The beautiful Oregon Coast provides her with endless artistic inspiration.

Darlene originally went to Lewis and Clark College in Portland to pursue her first love which was Music.  Her major was music with a minor in art.  She is a singer and gave up her aspirations to one day become an opera singer to be a mother and wife.  However she was still able to pursue her love of art along with her mother Merle Boswell Skinner who lived in Klamath Falls after her retirement from teaching.  They both took art classes together and had a wonderful bond through their shared interest in art.  Her mother Merle Boswell attended the University of Oregon and studied under Maude Kerns in the early 1900s.  It is easy to see Darlene's  strong musical influences at work in her paintings.

Listen to Darlene talk about her art in her own words with the audio player below.



"Visions of Spring Dogwood" copyright 1989. Private collection of the artist. Painted in memory of her mother Merle Boswell Skinner.
