I am originally from downstate Illinois. I received a BS degree from Bradley University in Peoria Illinois majoring in Mechanical Design and minoring in art. I studied watercolor under the prestigious watercolor artist Gerald Fromberg. I continued my art studies in North Carolina at Wingate University where I studied ceramics and portraiture. In Monroe, North Carolina I served as an apprentice in a working country pottery. I've lived in California since 1983 where I specialized in disability access solutions and electronic security until retirement in 2007. Since then I have enjoyed painting and showing my art "full time." I am a member of the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society.
