Artist Resume

 I have been painting for about 20 years now and have had a great time and some wonderful experiences.  My real hope is that whoever views, admires or purchases my paintings or art objects will enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.  I have made some wonderful new friends in the art groups I belong to.
