Artist: Statement: "I am a graphic designer for K-State Research and Extension and the college of Agriculture. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from LSU in 1977 and Master of Fine Arts in printmaking and drawing from Illinois State University in 1984. For the 20 years after finishing my degrees, I only occasionally created anything of interest until my creative fire rekindled. Since then I’ve been playing catch-up. I am a firm believer in “busy hands are happy hands”, and spend my free time making objects in wood."
