Painting is a way to show our feelings, energy and soul before the viewer. Much more than a pastime it is a visual memory that is interpreted in our minds and made visible through our hands. I have a BA from Michigan State University. My work is in many private collections, doctors offices and corporate sights . I have been an art teacher at Oakridge public schools in Muskegon for 37 years. I retired in 2010 and have focused on being a practicing artists. I am currently a docent at the GRAM which has enriched my artistic experience. Being a lifelong learner is surely a road to fulfillment , every empty canvas ,blank page , lump of clay iis a new beginning.
