I am primarily a self taught artist. I am an avid reader of art history, artist biographies, instructional, and philosophical art books. Over the last 20 years I have explored jewelry, precious metal clay, surface pattern design, oil, Prismacolor, watercolor, acrylic, and pastels. I strive to continually learn and expand my range of tools. Most recently I completed the Creative Visionary Program taught by Nicholas Wilton.
