about me


Born in 1958 in Lafayette,  Louisiana, I've  lived most of my life in Orlando and Gainesville, Florida.   I've traveled to Lubec, Maine; Puerto Rico, Canada, North Carolina, Blue Ridge, Georgia, California and Louisiana. Next vacation, the country of Panama or Costa Rica.  I attended Santa Fe Community College and earned my Associate of Arts degree.   I am  self taught and continually learn as my craft evolves and matures.  

Some might consider me a folk artist in that I am formally untrained and that I use "found" materials,  with no thought regarding the art market.  Well.....almost no thought.  The art pieces I create I would be glad to have in my own home or garden and  are infused with the gift of good will, chi, and spirit.
