I’ve had the privilege of being a professional artist for 40 years. And I’m thankful everyday. I graduated with a degree in art, from Ringling School of Art and Design. Went to work in publishing for 30 years as a graphic designer and illustrator. Spent the next ten years owning my own art business. Creating paintings and other types of freelance artwork. Had the privilege and honor to be selected as one of the artist’s to participate in creating artwork on two of the hearts last year.
