I create original artworks on paper or canvas. My subjects are from nature. I also paint portraits of humans and pets. I am challenged to create works outside these subjects.
I started drawing at an early age. I enjoyed drawing from the Sears catalog. Musicians like Cher, Beatles, and Diana Ross also inspired me. I had several mentors while growing up. My career path was not art related. However, I returned to school while in my forties to seek a Fine Arts degree. I received a BA from Columbia College, Chicago. I create new works regularly. I am active in several art groups.
