I have been doing artwork since I was a young child. My parents, teachers and friends called me "talented". I have always been a very visual person, inspired to paint the world around me and finding color and beauty in everything. . I earned a Bachelors of Art Degree in Visual Arts from the University of Montana in Missoula and a Masters Degree in Art Education from the University of Arizona in Tucson.
Later, I got involved in drawing storyboards for television. Went on to earn a Ph.D. in Secondary Education after writing a dissertation on television production.
Since college, I have been an art and television teacher in Florida, Arizona and Texas. Now retired, I am painting full time. I am also a member of a cooperative art gallery in :Port Isabel, Texas called the Laguna Madre Art Gallery Co-op..
I enjoy doing special commission paintings and my work is in private and corporate collections worldwide.
