THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY WEBSITE!  I'VE BEEN DRAWING AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER.  IN HIGH SCHOOL I WOULD DRAW IN THE MARGINS OF MY NOTEBOOKS WITH SKETCHES AND DESIGNS TO GET ME THROUGH THE BORING CLASSES.  DRAWING ALWAYS RELAXED ME AND MADE ME HAPPY.  I WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE A VARITY OF WONDERFUL ART CLASSES IN HIGH SCHOOL.  NOT SO IN COLLEGE, BUT A PRIVATE TEACHER TURNED IT AROUND FOR ME AND TAUGHT ME THE FUNDAMENTALS ALL OVER AGAIN.  SHE ENCOURAGED ME TO TEACH ART.  I LANDED AN ART TEACHER JOB BY SUBMITTING A DRAWING I DID IN HER CLASS ALONG WITH MY RESUME.  I FINALLY FINISHED MY BACHELOR'S DEGREE IN ART WHILE TEACHING FULL TIME.

I LIVE IN SOUTHERN NEVADA WITH WALTER, MY STANDARD POODLE, AND ALMOST 20 YEARS AFTER I LANDED THAT JOB, I'M STILL TEACHING ART TO A WIDE VARIETY OF STUDENTS.  MY DAUGHTER AND HER FAMILY ARE A DAY'S DRIVE AWAY IN CALIFORNIA. I LOVE USING WATERCOLORS AND COLORED PENCILS TO CREATE MY ILLUSTRATIONS AND PATTERNS.  PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR PURCHASING OR LICENSING INFORMATION.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!
