My career has been one like so many other artists, lots of hills and valleys. We measure our success by what other people think of our work. So, I've used the words of others to describe what I have accomplished in my career. Born and raised in Florida, my father was a talented artist, and encouraged me to pursue my own passions.  My favorite subject is horses, and I wanted to become a veterinarian. However, my math skills are limited and I left college after 3 yrs. to raise a family, run a business, and pursue my art.  Most of my successes came when we moved to Texas.  I now live in Butte, Montana growing my art business and enjoying everything that goes with living in this beautiful state.
