I attained a bachelors degree in studio art August 2018. Photography, Dance, and exploring the arts interest me while I recuperate from old injuries; the latest was an attempt to dance-iceskate but I broke my left shoulder. I hope to learn more about film and video or photo-editing, copy editing, and current events. Cartooning and going to music events is a recent joy. And I hope to sell more artwork from a tent at the Durango Farmers Market and the Animas Night Bazaar on Sat. and Wed.
Starting as a dance major at Southern Methodist University and transferring to California Institute of the Arts in Valencia kept me searching for different dance techniques. I studied with Alwin Nikolais and Murray Louis in New York City, as well as audited silk screen photography and etching at the School of Visual Arts in New York City in the late 1970s. I returned to Dallas and studied Dance and Painting at Richland Community College, completed my associate of arts at Pueblo Community College, and bachelors at Fort Lewis College. The whole process is taking 45 years for completion. Along the way I married, had a daughter, divorced and now wish to vend my arts. Education is an ongoing process and I appreciated the help from my peers, teachers, and the younger colleagues in class.
They challenged me and also kept me thinking, active, and helped me stay young.
