I am a professional artist and writer. I also teach workshops on painting nationally and internationally. I have three books published. The last book published is: The Artists Muse: Unlock the Door to Your Creativity. I have also been a magazine writer since 1987. In 2007, I was one of 28 American artists invited to exhibit in the First International Exhibition of Watermedia Contemporary Masters in Nanjing, China in the Xiangsu Museum. My work is in private and corporate collections throughout the United States, in Japan, the Bahamas, Australia, Canada, and England.
