About Me

My photo
I began drawing and painting at a very young age and knew early on that I would choose art for my life. I achieved success early on in high school and college in the arts, but after college, I felt compelled to a career in ministry and have spent many fulfilling years helping others find their purpose in life. Through the years, I continued to paint mostly for enjoyment and as an outlet, but in 2007, I realized that an important part of my own life-purpose was creating and painting. The internet, which of course was not available 25 years ago, is such a useful tool for artist, opening doors and providing exposure that would otherwise not be possible. With this new opportunity, I have been pursuing painting and marketing my art whole heartily, usually painting on a daily basis. I live in Tucson, love to jeep, love to paint and study art, and my paintings are often inspired from some remote mountain location in the high desert.

Health Services Foundation Charity Auction

I was asked to donate a painting to the Health Services Foundation Charity Auction in Houlton, Maine in May.  The goal of the auction was to raise enough money to purchase State-of-the-Art Digital Mammography equipment for Houlton Regional Hospital.

Why I am a Painter and Not a Baker! This is from my weekend teaching at my church

Length: ‎1:20

In addition to being an artist, I teach each weekend at my church in Tucson, Arizona and thought I would give a nifty visual using a pie of how we should be spending our income according to percentages... Never dreamed this would happen.  Will I ever live this down - don't think so!
