I have been interested in artistic endeavors for most of my life. I have been painting professionally for over 30 years. I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in art. After I graduated, I taught first grade until I decided to become a self employed artist specializing in watercolor paintings.

I have had my paintings in many art galleries througout Texas. I have taught adult classes in watercolor and decorative painting and children's classes in multi-mediaand decorative painting. I am certified to teach art in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade and have taught art in the public school system for the last four and a half years.

About eight years ago, I was attending a carving seminar with my husband, Dee, and I became fascinated with chip carving. I tried it and found that I absolutely love it. I have been chip carving ever since. I have been fortunate to be able to take classes and learn from some of the best. I have won many awards for my paintings and carvings, and have had a chip carved plate that won Best of Class shown in Chip Chats magazine. I hope to continue to learn and grow in my chip carving and pass that love, knowledge and enthusiasm on to you.
