About Me

  ”I try to convey an inner peace and harmony by creating a world made of light and mood - one that is timeless and deeply personal; where imagination is free and boundless; where the sanctity of the individual soul is cherished and preserved, untouched by outside judgment or desecrated by society's labels.”


1950   Born in Newton, Kansas                                                                                               

1972   BA in History, University of Redlands, California

1970   Sabbatical, Salzburg, Austria
