I began dabbling in (taking classes) in art about six years ago (after retiring from law practice). Today, I am a Mixed Media Artist living in Vallejo, California. My public exposure is in its infancy: a few years ago a piece of mine was accepted in the juried Vacaville Art Show; in August of 2019 three pieces were accepted in a juried Art Show at Graton Gallery in Graton, CA; and I have shown and sold my work at various art venues and sales (including Vallejo Art Groove). In April. 2019 an altered book of mine was published in “Art Journaling” Magazine (Somerset Publication).
Much of my work has been inspired by the work and teachings of LorriMarie Jenkins, with my own style becoming more and more evident. I have been able to travel with LorriMarie to Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand to assist in presenting five-day altered book workshops. Next will be Delaware and Georgia in September of 2019.
