Creativity sparked in me through a paint-by-number kit of a wharf scene I received at age six. When completed, it was framed and hung above my grandparent’s fireplace. Intoxicated with a sense of accomplishment, I was hooked!
My journey has been a true joy in meeting many wonderful and accomplished artists. All have gone out of their way to share their knowledge. Over the years of living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Fort Bragg CA, and now in Auburn, I've been afforded an array of art classes, workshops, associations with other artists, art shows, fairs, and competitions.
Most often, the artist's goal is simple, to create good art. Along with awards and recognition, I must also admit there is a mounting pile of clinkers.
Humility goes with the territory, yet the motivation remains to create that next masterpiece.
