"Creatitivity is God's gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God." Julia Cameron -- The Artist's Way

My life is about being a creative person, and I've tried to combine my excitement for art with my other interests of history and travel. Being lucky enough to live in California, I have the greatest opportunity for fabulous subject matter. But the history of ancient civilizations draws my attention still. And I rely on my sketches and photos from many trips abroad for subject matter.

During a year in Saudi Arabia I had an art show and sold out all pieces. I've been in many juried shows in Sacramento at Sacreamento Fine Arts Center and won awards. A first for California Arts League and several others including a second, two thirds and honorable mentions.

I've been in three different shows at 10th Street Gallery in Sacramento, including the 50-50 in 2009. Recent shows are Fairfield 48th Annual and Lodi 51st Annual. I have a B.A. from San Jose State University.
