What else? - am active with many local arts organizations, serving on boards and helping to raise money and increase membership.  Jury art events, help with local schools, illustrate books/covers, mentor new artists to the KC area, and stay busy....as artists have to do...


Where can I see the work? - come to First Friday in the Crossroads, any month from 6-9 at Studio Above, on the second floor above the Leedy-Voulkos Gallery.
