Heights Recreation Center

As a native Texan I grew up in Odessa Texas and went to school in Denver Colorado, Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Denver and worked advertising for Regional Transportation District in Denver.  After moving back to Texas I worked for a local Magazine “The Meeting Manager” for Meeting Planners International as production manager and in production and design for all promotional materials. Then I worked a graphic artist and production communication for a local Printer.  I then took on my most important job of my life, staying home with my two boys for ten years

I was approached to do some school signs for my son’s school and was offered to teach.  So I went back to school and my certification in teaching art in all levels K-12 grade since 1999. I’ve taught at Canyon Creek Christian Academy, Plano Christian Academy and Wylie ISD and currently teach at Lucas Christian Academy.

I am the Vice President of Richardson Civic Art Society, where I have held many positions for the past several years. I am also member of Southwest Watercolor Society, Colored Pencil Society and Christians in the Visual Arts.

My work is in various mediums including watercolor, acrylic, collage and mixed medium. 

I hope you enjoy my show.

One of the great perks of RCAS membership is the opportunity to show and sell your work at the Huffhines Recreation Center in Richardson. A new show is hung approximately every two months and any member of RCAS is eligible to hang up to 3 paintings in each show (at no cost to the member).

A new exhibit by seven of our members went up on Tuesday at the Huffhines Recreation Center, located at 200 N. Plano Road between Arapaho and Belt Line in Richardson. Mickey Archer, Karen Harris, Toni Wengler, Tom Jordon, Jones C. McConnell, Jr., Janice Hamilton and Lari Howard all hung work and as you can see, some very strong paintings are on display. The exhibit will be up 'till June 5th, so drop by and see what your friends have been up to.
