As far as I can remember, I have been an artist. It always seemed an intrinsic part of who I am. Many times in my life, art endeavors have been interrupted by life’s overwhelming situations. But when I return to art and loose myself in it I feel most at home in who I am. Although I have a BA degree in photography, a minor in studio art, and two single-subject California teaching credentials, I rely mostly on the years of self-taught drawing, painting, photography, and my love of nature, my constant teacher.
