I remember doing art as a small child and have been enthused with it all my life. I took 4 years of Art in High School & one of my art profile pictures that I drew in class was picked to go on display for 2 weeks @ Central Oregon Community College in 1987, which was a big deal to me. I continued to carry on my passion with art in general and raised a family with 3 beautiful girls from Burns, Oregon. In the year 2000 I discovered a new form of art that has never left my side, which is Paper Collage. I have literally mastered my own style in this art medium. I have taught this off and on through the young at hearts and Seniors. I just recently have got back into taking pictures and try to find some extra time to go out and explore and what better place to do that then the Willamette Valley. I have lived in Albany, Oregon for about 7 years now. When I take pictures, my attraction seems to be drawn to insects, drops of water and old barns. I would describe my work as diligent and I am glad to share my work, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
