Art has always been a fundamental part of my life. I have been painting and drawing since childhood and formed a love of ceramics while in college. I hold a bachelors degree from Washington State University in Art Education and a masters in Art Education from Boise State University. In addition to creating my own personal art works I have been involved in the arts in the classroom at Bishop Kelly High School for thirty five years. I am currently a member of both the Idaho Watercolor Society and Treasure Valley Art Alliance.
