I am a self-taught artist who continues to learn, even in my retirement years. I have numerous awards and have been represented in California and Georgia galleries and been a member of several national art organizations over my life time. I still am a member of a few that I really appreciate.
I graduated from USC in the dental field, but also ran several art related businesses. In California I had the Ojai Art Garden and was an art commissioner. In Georgia, I started a non-profit art center in Fayetteville, outside of Atlanta, which later morphed into ArtWorks on the Square which lost its 5,000 sq ft space during the recession. As they say, when one door closes, another opens. After loosing that building, I found in 2014 that I had the time to go back to a much earlier passion, screenwriting. Thankfully, I am still able to win awards.
I'm now at the point where I want to give back and therefore want to offer original paintings at prices anyone can afford. I want to help grow one's own art collection and be able to afford art and screenwriting classes.
Life is short and can be hectic - so if you have something you ENJOY, take the time to enjoy it!
