Art has inspired me throughout my life. The satisfaction of improving my skills to the next level has been very fullfilling. I've always painted or drawn since the young age of 3. Earning a BA in Studio Art from UMKC developed my talents further. During my art career, I've concentrated on various mediums including acrylic landscapes and floral paintings, very detailed, multilayered Prismacolor Pencil drawings, painted furniture, Southwestern Indian drum designs, children's book illustrations, murals, pastel floral drawings and caricatures for the last 24 years.
