| Like a writing career born out of selling pencils, my artistic endeavors evolved from an after school job in a small town Kansas paint and
wallpaper store. I collected old tubes of tinting pigment which, when I applied them to canvas, resulted in some of the worst paintings in the county. Although I have a masters degree in history, my chief occupation has always been the fine arts and high crafts. I have worked as a glass-
blower, sculptor, painter and computer artist.
Over the years I have exhibited throughout North America in public and
private galleries. I currently live and work on Saltspring Island off the
coast of British Columbia.
