I am a native Texan and educated in Texas. My passion is painting, I love wildlife, wild flowers, cowboys, Indians, and children. They all have an equal opportunity to land on my canvas. I am a Texas certified art teacher and taught for 12 years in the Dallas School System before becoming a full time artist. Growing up in Texas made it easy to find ranches, pastures, and prairies peppered with wildlife, horses and cattle that offer a variety of sources for the perfect painting.
