I am a self-taught artist and member of Corrales Society of Artists in New Mexico. I began drawing as soon as I could hold a pencil and crayon. When I was six years old, I was gifted a "paint-by-number" kit. I can still smell that paint and remember how smoothly it glided over the panel.
As a youngster, several of my pencil and ballpoint pen drawings were displayed in local community buildings arround my hometown in western Washington. At age 14, I won second prize in a statewide youth art competition and sold my first ink drawing of area songbirds the following year.
Desiring to learn more about wild creatures led me to major in Wildlife Biology and Rangeland Management. I also took courses in drawing, scientific illustration and photography.  I recently retired after a wonderful career as a Wildlife Biologist and Rangeland Management Specialist.  I continue pursuing my passion for wildlife with pencils, pens, paint and camera. My pieces represent places I visited and animals or landscapes that fascinate me.
