Art education for me was not in the form of a traditional classroom. I have come to realize that my inherited traits, and the surrounding of creative adults as I grew up, along with my curiosity with wide open eyes were my initial training. (I am a 3rd generation Artist) With a strong desire to earn a living in Art and raise a family, I needed to push myself beyond my knowledge. There are no limitations when it comes to the strength of your imagination. Commissi
on work in design and creation of sand carved and leaded glass for the past 42 years has been a driving force and enabled me to study and research styles, architecture and nature as well as meet some incredible people Art has taken me places both physically and mentally. Art for me I feel it is basic to life. Although I make a living in Art it is more of a life style I have a huge passion for the ocean and the creatures that live there. I am a trained volunteer for environmental education and beach naturalist for the Seattle Aquarium. I Enjoy teaching Art at the Beaver Valley School as a volunteer monthly in the K-1 class. After school and summer programs for ARTIS and now Wenatchee River Institute have been a joy. It is my goal to instill the joy of Art and Nature with our Kids
