Biography from a third party submitted on 06/15/2010:
Artist Statement:

"I am the fourth generation of artists from my mother's side of the family.  I can hardly remember my great grandmother, but I have clear art memories of mother's and grandmother's ability.  Art is something I have always done. 

My interest in the outdoors and its creatures are strongly reflected in my work.  My essential academic basics were learned by examples at home and on to the University of Texas.

I moved to Encinitas, California in 1974 and enrolled in our local community college where I discovered printmaking, specifically the etching process.  It has been my medium for over 25 years.  I studied under Bill Baldwin, Frank Jones and Bill Kelly, the owner of Brighton Press.

Because drawing is something I enjoy, etching and scratchboard are my perfect mediums.  I am currently working on a series of linoleum block prints.
