The world is full of countless languages, even some yet to be discovered. Even so, my effort being a humble one; I desire to speak the language of soul and spirit through very earth laden objects. My journey has been sprinkled with both successes and failures. Following is a faithful narrative of my modest accomplishments.

I grew up in San Antonio, Texas where my parents have always been so supportive of any of my artistic endeavors. My mother has always been so talented and I learned from her all of my growing up years. In school I had the privilege of wonderful art teachers, and in my 17th year was blessed to find the woman whom I owe so much thanks to artistically and spiritually, Vie Dunn-Harr.

Life took me to Ohio for several years where I was represented by various notable galleries, including the Charles Mayer Gallery, Lazor Tarzan, Plant et Art, and the President McKinley Museum. I was involved in artistic charities for churches and for the Canton Cultural Center's Auction for the funding of the Arts.

I was hired by President McKinley’s Museum for a sketch of his monument which has graced coffee mugs, afghans and letter heads alike that have traveled as far as China, Russia, Germany and various other countries. In 1997, I was able to go to England and Scotland to undertake personal studies of art. In the fall of 1999, I traveled to Italy to study in Tuscany, Umbria, and the city of Rome. In Umbria I was in the Country House Montali Exhibition.

In September of 2000, I returned to Texas to live. I continue to paint and instruct from my private studio. Spring of 2002 I had the honor of being accepted into the Salon International exhibited at Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art. In the Fall of 2002, with my husband, I briefly returned to Italy for study.

I have a passion for teaching as well as painting, and hope through expressing my own spirit in them, that God, who has blessed me with art, would be honored and pleased.
