In life and in art, I am always trying to be better today than yesterday. Since the age of four I have been enamored with the arts, specifically drawing and painting. I attended Tyler Jr. College in Tyler, TX and Southwest State University in Marshall, MN for Fine Art with concentration in Drawing and Painting. I had the great opportunity to study under Edward Evans there. I am a member of the Granite Area Arts Council and have been teaching painting classes publicly since Feb. 2014. I have had verious art shows throughout the years and have been teaching painting classes since Feb. 2014. I am looking forward showing at the Meander Arts Crawl Fall 2020 in SW Minnesota.
