About the Book
I consider myself a painter first, although I think I have tried most of the traditional mediums throughout my art career. Somehow I keep returning to paint. I grew up in a rural community in western Michigan where art wasn't even on the radar. i was very fortunate to have a supportive art teacher in high school and with his encouragement I developed a fascination with drawing and creative projects. After high school i went to Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, there I got my three year diploma in illustration, I continued on to Utica College/ Syracuse University to complete my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Finally out of school, I found work as an illustrator in Saginaw, Michigan and my fascination with new and exciting assignments grew. Eventually that position was phased out and I started exhibiting my work at local art festivals. Seventeen years later i am still exhibiting and traveling all over the country, While working from my home in central Alabama.
