I've always enjoyed drawing and painting. As a gift my father gave me a small oil painting set when I was a teenager. I took high school's tempera, and sticky paper mache' classes. A class in silk-screen printing. I took various fine art courses at the local University. Later entered mall art shows. There were some outside festivals. I decided to try mail art portfolio, or snail mail. I would send to art publishers, greeting cards, magazines, and the variety.
I was featured in Cat Fancy magazine, often the show page. Followed by Bird Talk, Dog Fancy occasionally. I did a colored pencil drawing of an angelfish featured in Freshwater and Marine Aquarium magazine. Featured in Cats & Kittens magazine. I created Christmas paintings for a greeting card and poster company located in the Berkshires.
Currently I'm working in mixed media. Primarily watercolors and acrylics.
