Jackson Michigan was the place of my birth. Since the age of five, with my crayon drawings, I was busy sketching and creating memories. With art, I could be anywhere, create whatever I desire, and paint with the gifts that I had been given.
The scope of my education includes an Associate’s Degree in Art from Jackson Community College and a Bachelor Degree in Studio Art from Michigan State University.
I have studied art for over forty years and have always been intrigued and fascinated with Monet’s work with impressionism. In 2005 I discovered Plein Air painting. I have created numerous landscapes and reflections in the water with pastels and other mediums. Over the last twenty years, I have painted large murals for homes and commercial businesses in the Mid-Michigan area. My private business, CREATIVE ENDEAVOURS, offers me the privilege of teaching, painting and doing custom contract work.
