I was born and raised in Minnesota and raised in a small suburb of the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. While in grade school, I enjoyed doing art projects but it was not until my adult years that I took art much more seriously. I earned a two-year degree in Graphic Arts at Dunwoody College. I often felt somewhat envious of others who possessed artistic talent, and this prompted me t become a self-taught artist. I purchased various art material and numerous books and spent countless hours studying art, reading, and drawing before moving onto painting and other media.
I enjoy taking using the skills that I have learned to teach others how to bring out their artistic talents!
