About the Artist

I WAS BORN IN TORONTO, CANADA AND RAISED IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. I ALWAYS KNEW I WANTED TO BE AN ARTIST OR DESIGNER AT A VERY EARLY AGE. I WAS NOT ABLE TO PURSUE MY TRAINING TO BECOME A FASHION DESIGNER / ILLUSTRATOR, SO STARTED TO TEACH MYSELF TO BECOME AN OIL PAINTER. I WAS ALREADY PAINTING AND DOING SOME TEACHING FOR 20 YEARS, WHEN I MET MY HUSBAND GARY. SINCE 1980 I HAVE TRAVELED NATIONALLY TO TEAM TEACH SEMINARS WITH GARY FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS, WE TRAVELED TO ABOUT 30 U.S. STATES ON AN ANNUAL BASIS. IN 1981 GARY AND I STARTED OUR OWN ART INSTRUCTION VIDEO PRODUCTION BUSINESS. WE PRODUCE MANY VIDEOS ON OUR SELVES AND OTHER ARTISTS. THESE VIDEOS ARE STILL SOLD TODAY THROUGH OUR MAIL ORDER BUSINESS. IN 1988 I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GUEST ON ONE OF GARY'S PBS SHOWS. THEN IN 1990 AND 1991 I HOSTED MY OWN TELEVISION SERIES. FROM 1992 TO 1999 I WAS A GUEST MANY TIMES ON GARY'S SERIES. I ALSO WROTE 19 BOOKS TO ACCOMPANY THE TELEVISION SERIES AND WROTE TWO MORE NON- TELEVISION BOOKS. AFTER RETIRING FROM TELEVISION IN 1999, I CONTINUED TO TEACH AND STARTED PAINTING FOR A HIGH END ART GALLERY IN CARMEL, CALIFORNIA. IN 2006 GARY AND I AGAIN HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO HOST OUR NEW SHOWS ON PBS. I AM ALSO THE CO-DIRECTOR OF OUR NEW TELEVISION SERIES. I HAVE SINCE WRITTEN FOUR MORE BOOKS. WE HAVE ALSO BEEN VERY INVOLVED IN DEVELOPING NEW SIGNATURE PRODUCTS. IN BETWEEN MY VERY BUSY SCHEDULE, I HAVE BEEN PAINTING AGAIN FOR ANOTHER NEW GALLERY IN DEL MAR CALIFORNIA. I CONTINUE TO TEACH ON A LIMITED BASIS, TRAVELING TO GERMANY AND CALIFORNIA AND TEACHING IN OUR OWN STUDIO. I SPECIALIZE IN FLORAL PAINTING AND ALSO LOVE TO PAINT EXOTIC BIRDS. PAINTING VERY LARGE GRAPHIC FLOWERS ON GALLERY WRAP CANVASES FOR THE FINE ART GALLERIES IS MY FAVORITE WAY OF WORKING. GARY AND I HAVE LIVED IN FOUR STATES THE LAST 30 YEARS, AND CURRENTLY RESIDE IN CARSON CITY, NEVADA. WE HOPE TO MOVE BACK TO CALIFORNIA BY 2012 OR 2013. I HAVE BEEN PAINTING FOR 49 YEARS, AND BEEN A FULL TIME PROFESSIONAL ARTIST AND TEACHER FOR 30 YEARS.
