I am an Iowa native who lived in the state about 40 years who then lived in Texas for the next 20 years. In November 2010, I moved to South Dakota.
I am a hobby photographer as well as a Professional Artist. I work in watercolors, India Inks and digital pixie-ons. I generally use 140 lb watercolor paper for my traditional artwork. Corel Painter software is my digital painting software of choice.
I love reading, learning new art techniques and learning more about already known to me techniques. Art is a growing, learning and social experience for me that never stops being fun for me. I enjoy meeting other artists and seeing the incredible artwork others create.
I am not as active in creating art today  as I used to be due to Vascular Dementia [my short term memory is like swiss cheese] .. I am very slowly making progress towards creating more art again.
