I call myself an Accidental Artist because I came to art by a circuitous route--via literature, theater, photography, music, education, rubber stamping, and altered arts. Now I fully embrace mixed media and digital arts as my personal expression. I do portrait and family photography as a way to interact with others outside my usual circle.
I am an educator in many ways: sometimes in the classroom, sometimes through my blogs, and often in random meetings with unexpected people. By nature an introvert, I view all of my experiences with other people as opportunities to learn. I've been married since 1987 and have three brilliant daughters and a fabulous son in law.. God is good--all the time. That's the motto of my moments and the inspiration of my life.
