I am mostly a selftaught artist . I start painting about 15 years ago and since I retired I paint for my pleasure and hoping someday someone will like what I do and buy one ( or Two...)of my paintings . I am a Board member of good standing of Arlington Visual Arts Association . Participate with " Wide Spectrum " group of artist in six shows in Arlington TX . Won A Merit Award at the 2009 AVAA juried show and a " Best of work on Canvas " at the 2011 AVAA juried Show .
