My art career, has not only given me opportunities to discover a world beyond my own, but created opportunities of discovery in local communities as well as other cultures throughout the world.
I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a BS in Art Ed, and continued my studies in art and design at Purdue University . There I worked as an instructor teaching basic design courses, including magazine design. My career for the past 30 years has been in graphic design, specializing in magazine design.
My paintings stem from the basic design components, such as line, form, shape, color, texture, and value. I like to think of my work as more of the process instead of the outcome, creating expressionistic work often teetering between representational and non representational outcomes. But always pushing those elements of design.
