In addition to obtaining a degree in psychology, I studied at The New School of Art and Ontario College of Art. Creating with various mediums is exciting to me and I will often mix them together in one artwork. An avid photographer for over 40 years, I photograph animals, birds, plants, insects, reptiles and landscapes to use as reference material for my paintings and sculptures.

A juried member of Northern Arizona Watercolor Society (NAWS), my work has been displayed in numerous national shows and museum venues including the internationally renowned Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum's "Birds In Art".

In 2008, the Woodson Art Museum chose my painting "Upstream" for the "Birds In Art" exhibition poster, as well as for their advertisements in Southwest Art Magazine and the Chicago-area newspapers. A couple of months after the opening of the show, they called to let me know the poster had sold out...faster than any other poster in "Birds In Art" history! "Upstream" was also selected as one of 50 works for the museum's traveling national "Birds In Art" tour throughout 2009. From May 9-August 16, 2009, the Frank H. McClung Museum in Knoxville, Tennessee featured "Upstream" on their exhibition postcard and banner.

Creating out of my home studio, I'm honored to have my artwork in private collections throughout the United States and Canada.
