with my art until retirement. In 2005 I studied Portrait Photography under the
master of portrait photography, Oscar White, former President of Pach Brothers
in NYC, author of “Portrait Photography” and photographer of such greats as
Eleanor Roosevelt, President Eisenhower. These studies enhanced my ability to
photograph and compose a picture. I can both photograph and draw my subjects.
2008 I took classes in graphite drawing under Sandra Angelo and later, Helen

Arts, Poway, CA. My work has been selected for exhibition at the Escondido Municipal Gallery, Escondido, CA, and the San Diego County Fair, Del Mar, CA.
