"LET ART SHINE"
For as long as I can remember, art has been a part of my life. I started my first formal art lesson at the age of nine and have been painting ever since! The influence that art has played in my life has been a true and lasting friend and gift from above.
I have a Bachelor of fine arts in Art Education and a Bachelor of fine art in art with a concentration in painting from East Carolina University. Also, I studied under Walter C. Emerson, a political cartoonist from the Dallas Times Harold, Sandy Bergeron of Huntington Beach, California, and John Plumber Ludlum of Tustin, California.
Onslow County has been my home for the past eight years. I taught art at Richlands Elementary School for four years, and at Queen's Creek Elementary for the past four years.
As a personal artist, I have been painting in oils and acrylics for the past forty years. I spend most of my summers doing my collage work, painting murals, and commission work for individuals, businesses, and churches.
