Art and American History
Currently my projects focus on producing resources that tell the story of Americans whose contributions to American history and the arts have been overlooked,
forgotten, and too often buried.  My goal is to produce resources that reflect a more inclusive, diverse, and dynamic American history.  I accomplish this goal through a combination of research, personal history, and my art and teaching backgrounds. Publications and topics include (click links):
 
 
 
 
Senior Art and Community
Of critical importance to me is the philosophy of "paying it forward" as I teach
drawing classes for community seniors ages sixty and above with no previous
drawing experiences.  In working with the senior population for many years, I
can validate the following: drawing for individuals over sixty years is a creative and effective means to increase individual self-esteem, develop critical thinking, provide
an avenue for individual expression, encourage social interactions, reflect life experiences, and strengthen seniors’ ability to focus and retain memory.  Click here
