As a career art educator in Des Moines I worked at nurturing creative problem solving In self and others through a variety of art media. Today my work is thematic, using a number of media-- often within single piece. . Silver fabricated jewelry may hang in paintings. Creative content has always been as important as technique. My past SAL experience has included serving on the SAL Board, chairing the scholarship committee, helping with youth art, serving on NBAZ exhibit committee, and doing 12 years of HITH. As an exhibitor I have had 4 solo shows, had several galleries in Iowa, Colorado and Arizona. My preference today is to share from my home-based studio. I will be doing 2016 HITH.
