I AM AN ARTIST FIRST, though I served as a Kansas Arts Commissioner for Governor Graves and Governor Sebelius for a combination of 7 years, served as a Coin Commissioner for the development of our commemorative state quarter,  consulted for art in public places with Architects & Engineers on a 1% budget for the City of Wichita's Development projects, and served on the City Manager’s Aesthetic Review team for Mayor, Chris Churches.  I have volunteered on various boards and community service organizations
