Born in Cleveland OH in 1946 - a VERY long time ago.
My interest in art began because my Mom used to entertain me with her drawings of Betty Boop.. I was enthralled!! I began drawing around the age of 4 and have never stopped (except when forced to by circumstances beyond my control).
Realism is where I'm most comfortable. There is nothing like the feeling of something coming to life under your hands..
In 2008 I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer and have - so far - won the battle. As of February 2019, I am cancer free.
I have been rather absent for quite some time due to circumstances beyond my control like the raising os 2 grandkids, infected finger, surgery and other stuff
I hope you enjoy my attempts at representing living creatures.. and occasional flowers, and other things.
