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

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.
