I am a retired Art Teacher having taught for 27 years. I retired in 2007 to paint full time. I live in Boerne, Texas, 25 miles north of San Antonio with my husband who is also a teacher. We have five children and 13 grandchildren.
I have a BA Degree in Drawing and Painting from The University of California, San Bernardino and an MFA Degree in Painting from The Maryland Institute, College of Art, in Baltimore, Maryland. I hold several teaching credentials and have taught Reading, ESL, Fifth Grade, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Ceramics, Printmaking, Fibers, and Art History. I have taught in the public school system, in a private school, on the college level, and I have given private lessons. I am primarily an oil painter and I paint in a realistic style. When I am not painting I am drawing.
I am a member of the Texas Watercolor Society, National Association of Women Artists, Oil Painters of America, California Art Club, The Painterís Keys, and Contemporary Fine Art International and listed in Who's Who in America. I have been in numerous group and one woman shows.
I am the founding Artist/Teacher of Artists Who Teach. This is an on line, non-profit organization for the Artist who is also a Teacher. I started this organization in November 2007 and I now have over 580 artists listed. Go to www.artistswhoteach.org for further details.
