I have been drawing, and painting since the age of two. I loved drawing, and throughout grade school, and high school I took classes in painting, photography, woodworking, and welding. I went to Humboldt State to pursue a degree in Fine Arts. Over the past 20 years I have taken sculpture classes from Stephen Kautenbach, Yoshio Taylor and painting classes from Fred Dalkey, and mixed media Susan Adan. I have a lifetime love of creating and I am now retired so I can pursue painting, sculpture, mixed media and photography.
