Thank you for visiting!  Before the age of five, I was drawing and have continued to do so throughout my life.  I have experimented with everything from pen and ink, acrylic and oil painting to handcrafted bird houses. Late in the middle of life, I began to toy with the idea of taking the skills I have been blessed with more seriously.  It is my hope that my efforts to hone the skills I have and my efforts to learn new skills will be evident and appreciated.  Creating art brings me an inner peace and joy that I cannot explain.  If someone else is able to experience a bit of this peace and joy from the art I create, then I have accomplished something.

My professional experiences in the industry are limited to a few exhibits with the Caldwell Arts Council, and a few local venues.  Various pieces have sold over my life and have included private contracted work.  My journey in art began for me when very early in life, I received a scholarship to John C. Campbell Folk School.

As my experience expands, I will be adding newer pieces of work, so please check back often!

 
"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up; I wrote down "happy".  They told me I didn't understand the assignment and I told them they didn't understand life."
