All About Me

I am at my happiest when I am doing, planning or talking about art. I began my art career by becoming a certified "Bob Ross Instructor." I even mastered the Bob Ross technique and gave 30 minute demos for several years at the Missouri State Fair. I took and set up classes from various artists around the country, learning several techniques in portraits, animals, florals and landscapes. In 1995 I began taking art classes at Lincoln University and eventually switched to State Fair Community College in Sedalia. I have had five years of art and art history classes which include painting, drawing, ceramics, fibers, watercolor, printmaking and theory and design. You never learn it all.

I enjoy teaching a "painting in a day" most because it is a wonderful feeling to be able to instruct someone with little or no experience and have them complete a painting in just one day. It's wonderful for them to find that they too, with some instruction, can complete a painting in such a short time.

I am a member of the Jefferson City Art Club, Sedalia Visual Art Association and Best of Missouri Hands. I served on the board of the California Chamber of Commerce two years and Best of Missouri Hands two years. I was president of the Jefferson City Art Club two years. I owned and ran my own art studio for four years.
