Art is my passion. I love painting, drawing, printmaking and mixed media collage. I have been both a working graphic artist and personal fine artist most of my life. I have a Bachelors Degree of Fine Arts from UMSL. Over the years I have enhanced my art education with lots of workshops. I have attended workshops at John Campbell Folk School in Noth Carolina, where I learned enamaling and stained glass. I've also done watercolor workshops at John Burroughs School in St. Louis. I've taken metalsmithing classes at both Craft Alliance and Meramec Community College. I also love making jewelry and took a workshop on beading in Eureka Springs, Ark and attended a weekend workshop of Mixed Media Collage in Fort Collins, CO. Most of my art is nature and/or animal related but I've done a little bit of everything.
I am owner and director of an art camp for kids at Mastodon State Histotic Site, Imperial, MO., Artsy Pants Summer Day Camp.
I've been in several art exhibits over the years including Venus Envy in 2006, The St. Louis Artist Guild, Art and Soul, My St. Louis Art at Gallery33 and the Jefferson County Art Guild.
