I have been interested in Fine Art all of my life.  When I returned to get my bachelor’s degree it became my major as it was still considered a related field to Theater.  In my late twenties/early thirties, I branched out into oil painting and acrylics after studying figure art under my mentor Chalita Robinson who later became my inspiration to pursue teaching at the junior-college level.  Below is a small selection of work from my portfolio to showcase my artistic talent.
