Art was always part of my life – especially painting.
It started out when I was an elementary school teacher. I would make paintings for my students which I hung on the classroom wall to demonstrate to them the subjects of the curriculum.
After acquiring technical art training at Merced College, I joined the Artree program, teaching visual art in elementary schools throughout the county. Between classes I began painting portraits, landscapes, seascapes and still-life for commission.
I paint in watercolor, pastel, acrylic and alcohol ink, but my favorite medium is oil. For me, art is the universal language and the best way to express myself.Back to albums
