I have always loved to draw and paint. I love to draw and sketch from photographs and can do commissions if requested. I prefer to work from my own photographs. I also love to take photographs....mostly of nature or animals..even bugs will catch my eye. I am a down to earth quiet person who is married and has three great sons. I live in Centennial Hills(Las Vegas, NV.) And love Las Vegas clouds however I do covet the mountains and greenery As much as I love to draw and take photographs I find I am often hindered by my health due to rheumatoid arthritis, but because of my ongoing battle with this autoimmune disease I find that I have an absolute appreciation for when I am able to be up and about drawing or photographing things. All the little things in life keep me going and inspire me....live, laugh, LOVE LIFE.
