In the past five to seven years my daughter Katherine and I have individually donated over 3,000 hours of our time devoted to developing, mentoring, organizing, promoting and instructing at Wisconsin 4-H State Arts Camps, 4-H Art Teams preparing for 4-H State Youth Leadership Conference and Wisconsin State Fairs.
I strongly feel that as a professional artist it my duty to share my love of art through an educational format. I’ve been involved in the 4-H program since 1966, when I was living in Chicago Ill. and I’ve been dedicated to the 4-H Organization ever since that time.

This video is a collective of visual memories from the 2013 Wisconsin State 4-H ARTS TEAMS Planning weekend held at Upham Woods, located near Wisconsin Dells. The state 4-H teams represented in this video are Art Team, Press Team, Showcase Singers and Drama Company. The members of these teams gather together every April are comprised of over 100 youth that live throughout Wisconsin. Every June we gather together to create, art instillation’s and exhibit, photographic, musical and theater performances presented to 600 to 1000 4-H youth delegates at the state 4-h Youth Leadership Conference in Madison. The theme for the 2012 Youth Leadership Conference was “Exploring The Possibilities”
