I would like to think of myself as an artist. I have been making art for
over 35 years. I went to college and earned my art degree and then I thought
that I would teach high school art for a couple of years until I could get a
series of works together to get into a gallery. I did some gallery work for
a while but I was fascinated with trying to do a good job in my teaching that
my teaching of art became my art.

I think of my students as my art product. They reflect my teaching and have
gone on to be professionals themselves. An art teacher (or any teacher) is
a big influence on the youth of today and they (students) are the product of
our work. I still do art and, give it away or donate it to charity auctions,
but my work now is students and my product is their enthusiasm for art.

I still tell them I'm an artist teaching art but they art my art project.
