 IART IS MY PASSION AND MY STUDIO IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC TO WATCH ART BEING
CREATED.
 I began drawing at the age of 4.  My aunt was inspirational and would have  me to stay with her where we would paint for hours in her apartment.  I was known for being able to do art thru all of my years in school and then won the the art award as a senior in high school. Upon graduating I attended Michigan State University and my area of emphasis was life drawing.  Later upon discovering pastels about 20 years ago I studied with Tony Ortega at the Art Student league of Denver and then finished my education at Colorado Christian University.  I have been doing Interior Design for over 30 years and the combination of Interior Design and Art adds to what I believe is perfect combination of understanding what people want in their homes.  I opened Jackstraw Mountain Gallery of Art and Design 15 years ago in Grand Lake, Colorado where I have an easel set up and people can come and go as I paint and do design.  There is always a work in progress on the easel.
