I was born in suburban Maryland, near DC, and from the very beginning I liked 2 things: animals and art. I got into a lot of trouble in grade school for drawing and doodling in my notebooks (and on anything else that was handy!). I took art classes at the Y and even one of those mail-order art courses. I was very fortunate to encounter a phenomenal art teacher in high school, and I learned a great deal from that wonderful man. Like many young people in the seventies, I fiddled around with a variety of occupations for a few years before going on to college and shifting my focus from art back to animals. I became a veterinarian and spent 23 years after graduation taking care of animals in Wisconsin, raising two kids, and doing very little art. Gradually I began to feel the need to create, and began taking painting classes. I was hooked again!Eventually, I left Wisconsin winters behind me and came to South Carolina to begin a new life. The opportunity to produce art and make a living from my art is both stimulating and challenging. I hope that this adventure will continue for a long time!
