Coming from an educational background of history, law and psychology, I cautiously dipped my toe into the world of fine art and painting once I retired about ten years ago.
Born in Ohio, I have lived and worked in Southern California since 1963. A member of the California Bar, I received my law degree and a Masters Degree/ Clinical Psychology also in California. After retiring from a successful career in the corporate environment, I began the pursuit of a life long dream to paint creative and unique works of art.
I began painting in 2003 and continue to study art with Pam Schader, a professional artist and established art educator. I have participated in art exhibits with Emeritus, Irvine Valley College, winning an award, and Saddleback College.
