I can't remember a time in my life when I wasn't coloring, drawing, painting, designing, singing or creating something! One of my earliest memories was riding in the car with my dad singing to the radio. I also remember sitting at my grandmother's kitchen table drawing pictures for hours. I was born in Mauston Wisconsin. It's a beautiful part of the state with bluffs, forest, rivers and lakes. My surroundings were very inspiring to me. When I was 12 my father was transferred to Milwaukee WI for work and we moved to small town just out side of the city.
When I was in high school I took every art class there was. The last of which was called "Advanced Individulized Art". I was the only one in the class. I think the school administration just made it up because they didn't know what else to do with me... It was a great class though! I was able to choose what ever medium or project that I liked. And I found that what I liked was painting abstract and impressionistic paintings. I was free to create completely new realities and universes. Anything was possible.
From there, life has has been quite a ride! And I know there's alot more I could tell. Maybe another time. The one thing I can say is I've loved every minute of creating, learning, being inspired and inspiring. I attribute a great deal of that to all the incredibly inspired, talented and supportive individuals I've met along the way - Shout out to the "Crazy" ones!!
