Fur and Feathers

At age 7 my painting of a flamingo circled the world in a United Nations exhibit of children's art.

I was lucky enough to study animal painting at the San Diego Zoo and had the mystery of drawing and painting animals unraveled before my eyes each Saturday.

My teacher was an amazingly inspired woman who gave me the attitude that "all of life is art," and we all have the gift to express the beauty we can feel and see in nature.
