I live in Hardy, Virginia, having moved here from Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. I have been painting since 1987 and photography since 1962. While stationed at Lowry Air Force Base, Colorado I was involved with the base photography hobby shop. I learned a great deal from my amazing art teachers, Marcella Murphy and Nancy Stellhorn. The awards I have received through the years are very much appreciated. Practice, practice, practice. I love doing acrylic, watercolor, pen & ink, colored pencil and mixed media. I am continuing to learn more.
