My Bio

I have been painting and teaching since the mid sixties.  One of my watercolor paintings is in "Splash 3".  I am the owner of my own coop studio and rent space to other artists.  My techniques are quite varied as I like to keep my students interested, so we paint many different subjects.  I have had the opportunity to teach abroad in Italy and France.  Beside my family, art is "MY LIFE"
