I have always been interested in art from the time I was a small child; and it seemed natural for me to pursue this field into college. It was an exciting time of my life, very creative and challenging. Although I earned a degree in fine arts with a teaching certificate my life went in a different direction. Instead I transitioned into the commercial graphics field; and have worked in various graphic positions in California and Washington state for over 30 years. Now that I am retired, I am again pursuing my original interest in the fine arts.
