My philosophy is that art is for everyone. Art can give people a sense of purpose. Art can be used to heal. Art is an amazing tool that can affect a person's intellect, heart, and soul. As an artist, and I love to learn. Because of this, I have done many different kinds of art from drawing and painting, sculpture, printmaking, metalsmithing, and more. I usually call what I do just playing with paint. Along with creating my own art, I enjoy teaching others to create their own art. I have taught classes in nursing homes and assisted living communities. I love to see people's faces light up with a smile after they have created their own art. This is something I want to do more in the future. I do have a degree in art from Central Michigan University. My degree is a Bachelor of Applied Art with a Graphic Design Concentration. I have used my graphics skills throughout my working career doing marking for a few smaller companies in the Central Michgan region.
