I am in line for a bachelors degree in studio art by summer 2018. Photography, Dance, and exploring the arts interest me while I recuperate from old injuries. I hope to learn more about film and video or photo-editing, copy editing, and current events. National Public Radio and the news, music and theatre arts intrigue me.
Painting, digital media, and drawing also keep me striving to create more, as do the people I meet.
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 enrolled in 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 earn a bachelors in studio arts. Education is an ongoing process and I appreciate the help from my peers, teachers, and the younger colleagues in class.
They challenge me and also keep me thinking, keep me active, and help me stay young.
