First of all I am in Myrtle Beach, SC, USA. It is a resort city on the coast
of SC and is growing so fast that we cannot keep up with it in terms of school
buildings. right now Spring is bursting out all over.

I am female.

I teach traditional and computer generated art at Carolina Forest Education
Center High School.

I worked with metals for 15 years or so. I created jewelry and sculpture in
gold, silver, pewter, copper, brass, and steel. I exhibited widely and won
awards for my work. But for the last several years I have been back in the
2-dimensional form of expression. I use oil pastels primarily but also colored
pencils and watercolors. I work in mixed media most of the time. when I am
doing portraits, which I love to do, I work in oil pastels exclusively. Most
of the time. I am winning recognition for my work but I am not really persuing
the market like I should.
Most of my non-portrait work takes a weird twist from beginning to end. I am
also getting back to painting with acrylics slowly but surely. My pieces so
far have been multilevel canvasses involving conflict. I am at this moment not
really sure where my work is taking me but I am loving the ride.
