Iíve been drawing, since I was just a kid. I liked to copy illustrations from my favorite books and create illustrations for fairy tale books. I also loved to draw cartoon characters. In the 4th grade, I created a comic strip based on myself and my buddies at school. Other than the art projects in grade school, I didnít get any formal training until High School art classes.
I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a BS in Art Education and was an art teacher for a year in upstate New York ( Oneonta). After that, I began a career as a flight attendant for Trans World Airlines. I've been just about everywhere and love travelling, but the best part was being able to see all the great works of art and architecture throughout the world.
After a lapse of 30 plus years, I began painting again six years ago. To put it simply, it has changed my life. Iím hoping my life experience will begin to be reflected in my art work. I know I have a long way to go, but the journey is the best part, as they say.
