I am a Master Teaching Artist working in the ARTS ACCESS SOUTH CAROLINA programs that provide inclusive art programs for people with disabilities. I am currently active on the South Carolina Arts Commission’s Artist Directory and the Virginia Commission for the Arts teaching artist roster. My video entitled “How to Engage Students on the Autistic Spectrum,” was a training video for the Palmetto State Arts Educators Association teacher training workshops. The South Carolina Arts Commission awarded me the Ad Astra per Aspera Commendation for exemplary performance as an artist in residence.
My personal work has been in numerous books and magazines including The New York Art Review, American Artist Magazine’s Annual Watercolor edition, Who’s Who in Art and About the Author. Richard C. Owen publishes my children’s books. I also have nonfiction, and books of satire available on Amazon.com. My poetry has been published in numerous publications and anthologies. I won the International Golden poet award. My painting and/or other art works have won numerous awards and have been featured in national magazines and on both Public and Commercial Television programs.
