I moved to Arizona from Iowa in 2013 with the intention of making art my career. I happened to get off to a great start when I joined the Gilbert Visual Art League and met so many terrific people who are wonderful artists. In addition to paintings in oil and watercolor, I have painted public and private murals. My latest public mural is on the side of the American Legion building in Gilbert, AZ. It was a very exciting project and I'm looking forward to sharing my art on a large scale through additional projects in the area. I am currently a member of the San Tan Valley Artists and the Arizona Art Alliance, and Portrait Artists of Arizona.
