I was raised in several northern states but eventually moved to Texas and reside in Marble Falls. I attended university at UT and Texas Tech where I obtained my teacher credentials. In order to support my family, I worked for many years as an art teacher in the public schools. I also worked as a paste-up and layout artist for a trade magazine. In addition, I worked at a t-shirt company as a designer.Currently, I am working at an art gallery which gives me lots of time to create my own art.
My philosophy of life is that if more people created things, there would be less destructive activity in the world and less heartache. Doing something you love is a source of joy and I received artistic inspiration from Chagall and Kandinsky. Painting and drawing are a passion for me.
My work is on exhibit at Texcetera in Johnson City and I have shown work at Numinous Coffee, Herb Farm Restaurant and the Burnet Art Festival. I also am a member of the Bunkhouse Gang in Round Mountain and have my work at the Highland Lakes Guild.
