Gary came to Sierra Vista in 2004 which was a drastic change from my 34 years working and raising my family in Southern California. The beauty of the desert landscape helped revitalize my love of art.
My interest in art started when I was in grade school. I had my first one man show as a sophomore in high school, Sheridan, Wyoming. I was also one of the featured artists in downtown Sheridan in 1961.
My art education continued at the San Diego School of Design at Mira Costa College in Del Mar, CA and Oceanside, CA. I also attended the University of Nevada Art program. I have attended several workshops and seminars while in SE Arizona, and I have been fortunate enough to have won several awards in competitions in Wyoming, Nevada, California and Arizona.
As a member of the Huachuca Art Association, I have shown in the Gallery and became involved with the board of directors and am serving as President for a term of 2 years.
