i am extremely fortunate to have had the help of other artists, friends and family help me out as i made my way (and continue to make my way) thru the constantly changing world of art. i was in my late 30's when i started to lose my eye sight to rod-cone dystrophy. (previous to my career in art, i proudly served in both the USAF and the MN Air National Guard.)
i am grateful to have had the opportunities to share my art and my story (which includes equally: struggles and triumphs). it is my hope to help others who are living with vision challenges and wish to pursue a career in art, to do so.
if you know someone or if you, yourself are wanting some help in navigating the challenges of the creative community, please feel free to contact me. if i can help in some way, answer questions or simply encourage, i'd love to do that for you. feel free to contact me directly.
special note to teachers: please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding ideas for art projects/activities for your students who are blind/visually impaired.
if available, i can offer a complimentary inclusive artistry experience/kit for your classroom. this kit is a great tool to introduce awareness and inclusivity while having fun creating art!
