I’ve been fortunate to have traveled to over 39 countries; many while in the US Air Force.  I lived a total of 30 years in Germany.

In 1993 I retired to Scottsdale and began to pursue my interest in painting. I have studied art at Scottsdale Community College and  regional Community Centers.

I am an active member of Northeast Valley Artist League and  have exhibited and won awards in their shows.  I have also  exhibited at Via Linda Senior Center in Scottsdale,  Shadow Mountain Senior Center in Phoenix, and Ascension Lutheran Church in Scottsdale.

As of August 31, 2018 I have been awarded Juried Status with Arizona Art Alliance.

I am  currently one of the featured artists displayed at Pita Jungle restaurants around the valley.
