About

I've always been making art. I would say I am a self taught artist.

As an elementary student I designed a poster for the Azalea Festival in Oklahoma. My poster was selected to be put in a store front to promote the festival. My family and I walked the downtown streets and found my poster in the hardware store window. Childhood memories of my first piece of art on display.

In middle school I took several art and craft classes. I enjoyed these classes tremendously. It is a mystery to this very day why I didn't pursue more art classes in the public school system.

In the mid 90's I took drawing and painting classes at a Jr. College. Just a few hours shy of an Associate in Art. I still have some of this work on my walls today…

I am always on the look-out for an art class to learn something new. Lately I have have learned to fuse and slump glass, use PMC clay, and dabble in encoustic painting techniques.

I have been teaching special education for 27 years. Wow, how time flies! Although, art and creating have a very special place in my heart.

Oh, I can't forget these new endeavor, I am learning to play the djembe and learning to knit.
