I came to art in my retirement as I shed my career and was looking for a new experience. I have taken many art classes from teachers in Washington, Oregon, Vermont and New Mexico. As I absorbed the many techniques taught I have found my own style and am now a member of the Port Townsend Gallery . I have also been juried into art shows in Portland, Oregon and Northwinds Art Center. I have been a lifelong teacher of many subjects including art workshops. I enjoy sharing with students techniques and information that will help them find their own way to create their art. Exploring abstract art is fun, you never know where the next idea will come from as you work with the techniques and tools you learn.
