My painting career began in 1982. I had always been interested in art and decided to take a painting class after attending a local art festival. Although I have not had any formal training ; I have gained knowledge and experience through the workshops that I have taken, books, videos and simple observation.
I have shown my work at various art festivals in Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Nebraska and galleries in Topeka and Lawrence Kansas. The majority of my work is watercolor but I also dabble in acrylics. I like to try different techniques such as watercolor batik, inks, rice paper, pouring and spattering paint, stamping and whatever comes to mind.
