For me, creating something visually pleasing is very fulfilling. Various medias provide me with a wide variety of opportunities to share my gifts with others. My favorite subjects are bears, wolves, whales and nature, but I draw everything under the sun, using scratch board, pen and ink, oil pastels, painting in acrylics and watercolors, I etch glass and do custom sandblasting on mirrors, windows and automobiles. Having owned a sign company I make vinyl banners, signs and vehicle graphics. Commercial graphics aside, I also do face painting as “Bubbles the Clown”. I attended a professional art school in the 80’s, and have my Master’s degree in Education. I moved my family moved to Ketchikan in August 2015 to accept a teaching position at Holy Name School. We simply love it here.
