I have had a long career in the field of Developmental Disabilities as well as teaching college courses in Psychology and Anthropology. I have always found time to pursue my art and now that I am retired I can dedicate myself to this life-long creative outlet. I have always been an artist that has explored different mediums ranging from pen and ink and scratch board, to photo silk screening and printmaking, stained glass, and watercolor and oil painting! I sometimes like tight realistic drawings and more recently I have enjoyed a looser style of more abstract palette knife oil painting. My subjects are varied and if you ask anyone who knows me, I love vivid and vibrant colors!
