I’ve known Dee for many years.  I taught two of her three children.  Dee was a Somerville artist before being an artist in the ‘Ville  was cool.  Dee is a wonderful artist whose work I’ve admired for years.


Dee began her long-term love affair with painting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she first studied art in high school.  After marriage to Jim Turner and raising their family, Dee continued to paint part time, even though she had an additional working career.  

Early retirement allowed time for extensive travel over the United States and the opportunity to photograph many beautiful people and places, a variety of subjects for her easel.   A trip to Medjugorje expanded her artistic repertoire to include the European landscape.  

Dee is a member of the Brenham Fine Arts League, Brazos Valley Art League,  and Lone Star Art Guild

"I like happy paintings whether it is a still life, floral, landscape, or portrait.  I have painted using oils and still do; however, lately more of my paintings are watercolor and pastels."
