I am a retired first grade teacher who has always wanted to be an artist "When I grow up". I have a B.S. degree from Murray, Kentucky and an M.A. degree from Indiana University/Purdue University at Indianapolis, Indiana. My art training consists of classes taken at the Indianapolis Art Center, private classes, self study, workshops and many visits to museum and galleries. I have been doing juried art shows since 1996 and many of my pieces are now in private, corporate and museum collections.
