A number of years ago, a friend suggested that I use Siestashawn as a website address. I liked it.
I was born in Albuquerque, NM in 1953. In 1968, my mother, sister and I moved to Sarasota, FL. I graduated from Ringling College of Art and Design in 1975. I have two successful sons that are each married and have wonderful families. I am also very proud to have two granddaughters and three grandsons.
I’ve been an artist/painter since 1983. I paint for pleasure more than income. I live in my painting studio, 10 minutes from Siesta Key Beach, the #1 rated, best beach in the U.S.
