working in any media. When that media is paint, I will
draw the idea with paint, areas, and brush. This painting
was designed to be both the front and back cover of the
Christmas Eve service bulletin.
I am a cradle Episcopalian. My father was an Episcopal
priest in Wisconsin and Iowa until his death in 1976.
I was an art teacher in the Iowa City public schools from
1967-2002. My work usually is inspired by one of the lessons
for that particular Sunday. I begin a work like to experiment
with the angle, the light, the art material, the subject
and the style of an idea.
