My Occupation artist
My Bio After 30 years of teaching public education, I moved to the western slope of Colorado to paint, write, and enjoy the out of doors. I have a masters degree in art education. I have published articles and poetry, and won awards in art and writing. I teach, paint and otherwise pretend that I am not retired. The anthology is a composite of work by the critique group in which I participate. They are inspiring, critical, and spread humor within their criticism. They are diverse, amazing, and enthusiastic. You can see that in their work. We share an intense love of words.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
the Colorado western world of dogs and pickup trucks, including original watercolors of my humorous series of our furry friends and rusty vehicles.
