The arts have been a priority in my life for as far back as I can remember. Luckily, I had parents who made sure I had what I needed to make art whether it be my violin music or the visual arts. There has been a lifetime to practice and honing to acquire skills of reputable success. For most of us this is what it takes.
The performing and visual arts are my passion along with teaching and sharing with interested students. Watching a young, or older student find satisfaction and success with what we have taught them is a joy. Teaching involves partaking of the passion with your students and watching them find that is truly exciting. There have been side steps in my career but I have always come back to the arts the one true source of inspiration and happiness for me.
In this website I hope to give you a glimpse of that passion I speak of through the art I produce. For years I struggled to find my niche, my true style which spoke of what I was feeling and thinking. A break-through four years ago with the advent of the Keeper series brought to light that source much to my joy. I have learned to open the mind and heart and let the inspiration find me rather me looking for it. Once the portal is opened the messages and visual images pour in. This is what artists can only hope for.
I feel truly blessed to have finally been able to tap this seemingly unending source of inspiration. I question not where it comes from only open my heart to joyfully receive. It is my hope you will enjoy looking at this website so beautifully designed for me by my best friend, Leigh Scheidell who has worked many long hours putting it together. We will maintain the site to keep it updated and new work will be posted as it is created.
Thank you very much for visiting.
