My education continued at Robert E. Lee Jr. High School in Orlando, and then at Edgewater High School in Orlando. I was exposed to many areas of art and many mediums. Even though I was taught how to use all mediums, I began to concentrate on oils. I experimented with textured paintings long before they were popular. I also enjoyed the many areas of graphic arts and drafting.
My formal education ended at that point and because of family obligations, I put my brushes away. After 35 years, I am painting again and enjoying the creative outlet that it brings.
