I have been painting and teaching art for forty years now. I have always been an artist from day one I think, that was my main interest throughout my school years. I n High School in Garden Grove, California I was an A student with Mr. Nelson being my favorite teacher of course. Out of High School I was hired from Mr. Nelson's class to become a color plate artist at Buzza - Cordoza Greeting Cards in Anaheim, California. I also studied oil painting with Mr. Robert Guest in Anaheim, where I learned the love of being able to push paint all over a canvas, and I loved it and produced some wonderful paintings of which sold and was collections in several California Banks of the Anaheim, Garden Grove, and Orange areas. Since those early years and moving all over the world, I took to teaching and have taught in California, Texas, Oklahoma, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Georgia and Alabama, I am so proud of all my students of then and now, I take pride in thier success in painting for what ever reason they are painting. I teach it all, watercolor, oil and acrylics and am always asked which I like best, well as a true aritist I love it all, even pastel, and pencil both colored and just a plain ole #2 pencil and paper, will do. I enjoy to paint all of God's beauty that I can see in my life time, all subjects are wonderful, and I always try to be in a place to capture that beauty with my camera. I live in Georgia now, but love to travel many places to get those camera shots.
