I live in Mineral Point, the best small town in America! This is my 32nd year teaching elementary art. I am a practicing artist with work in a few galleries and have participated in many shows over the years. Unless it is a commission from a client, most of my artwork starts out as a dream, so I work in a variety of media, depending on the dream.
