I studied at The Atlanta College of Art, years after I was selling my work as a professional artist. My first teacher was Ouida Canady. I took classes from her in 1972. Knowing her changed the direction of my life. I exhibited in the early Piedmont Arts Festival and met artists that also had an impact on the way I viewed the world. A new alternative was revealed to me, and I jumped into the life like a person finding freedom after being freed from jail. For the first time, I was introduced to me. I began to express images that I had carried in the rooms in my mind. I used canvas or paper to place them, and found that there were more rooms than I could count, and more images than a lifetime could record. I now create in my studio at "The Nest," in Historic Norcross, 17 College Street. It is in the house next to the theatre. The theatre use to be a church, and the house, where the preacher use to live. Nothing stays the same. Change is not only good, but necesssary for surrival. I love the quote, "I contain multitudes...." by Walt W. My personal feeling is that, I have no boundries.
