Art was never part of my formal education. I have lived in and visited a variety of places, and the different experiences, tastes, and cultures have influenced my work over the years. My artistic education has included workshops, working informally with experienced artists/teachers, life drawing and plein-air groups, and self-teaching. I had the opportunity to paint with Thomas S. Buechner for a few years and have taken workshops with master pastellists to learn new approaches and techniques. I have enjoyed pursuing art simply as a means of self-expression and for the joy it gives me. It's a welcome change from my day job!"
