Born in Harrisburg, Illinois and grew up on a farm.  In my adult years I had a strong desire to study art.  I worked for Dallas Civic Opera for 5 years and then moved to Louisiana where I was able to participate in art workshops and seminars with other aspiring artists.  In addition to oil and watercolor instruction I enjoyed classes in decorative arts such as those used by craftsmen in European and Oriental countries to enhance furniture and gifts. 

I enjoy doing designs for new homes on tile and commissions on furniture for Interior Decorators.  In 2007 I designed and painted a 35 ft. mural in the Texas Gospel Music Hall in Athens.

Nickelodeon Magazine of New York published my design for a 5th birthday plate on their anniversary.  Martin F. Weber Co. published an article I submitted for the “Teachers Notebook Column.”

My work has won multiple awards in local and state competitions.  I share my enjoyment of art by doing demonstrations and teaching classes and workshops.

I am a member of the Henderson County Art Society, Athens; the Star Harbor Watercolor Society, Star Harbor; the Central Texas Watercolor Society, Waco and Decorative Painters of Wichita, Kansas.
