I am one of the lucky ones who wake up each morning and actually love doing what they do! I couldn't ask for a greater gift than a passion for art. I paint daily to keep myself fresh and focused, and I teach both private and group classes to absorb all that I can from other wonderful artists. With a BFA from Miami University, I have had a 30 plus year career as a professional artist, illustrator and instructor. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoyed creating it.
