My art making began with 30 years of teaching high school art in North Kansas City, Missouri. My teaching methods combined creativity and problem solving, with an understanding of art history.  I value the experiences I had and the opportunities to share my passion for art with nearly 3,000 young people.

My interest in moving in many directions at once came out of my teaching experience. To keep the kids interested I kept inventing new projects for them to work on. I also keep myself interested by playing with new materials and ideas.

I find myself now making things to continue an exploration of my world. My paintings, furniture, and sculpture are synthesizing the world I live in from a local and global perspective.

I love paint the way it is applied on canvas, furniture, and sculpture. My furniture pieces are paintings.

It is important to me that my work says something of our everyday world: Memories, cultural views, etc. I create art to elicit a response.
