I will be refining my artist's profile here and completing labelling of my art works. All works here are copywritten and are my own creations.
In 1970-72, Professor John Day was my first teacher in art at Mount Marty College. After the education that I had with Professor Day, most other art professors just let me develop my own statement as an artist. From 1977 to 1978, Professor Jan Zach at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR was my professor in sculpture. Years later, I was told that my Interdisciplinary Professors (Dance, Music and Sculpture)s considered that music inspired my artwork. I work in an interdisciplinary manner because, for me, the different expressions of art and creativity are all spokes on a wheel of life.
Since the age of 5, I have been writing poetry. Also began drawing, painting and making sculptures. I also like to compose music and write.

I say: "The Heart knows the journey to where the Heart is".
I was always driven to write poetry, paint, sculpt and compose music and organize thought, I knew that creating was a reflection of God's nature; that the world was a Creation of a Great and Eternal Love. When I was a child, my parents nurtured that understanding of God.
