I spent nearly twenty years raising a family and teaching art. Long ago, my professor predicted I would “only became a teacher” if I married a business major. However, I loved teaching art and it gives me great satisfaction when I hear from former students who became professional artists, illustrators, art teachers or who simply grew up to appreciate the art and world around them.
Using lessons on perspective and problem solving, I was able to build strong relationships with students, staff, and the community in a unique, memorable manner during my ten years as a school principal.
Upon retirement, I ran a successful photography business. In 2019, I truly retired and began to just make art. Since that time, I’ve been active with various art leagues, had work selected for juried shows, and have started selling my artwork.
