Like many artists I studied fine art and have been painting since I was young. I made a living as a graphic designer for the better part of my adult life. During that time painting took a back seat to design and family. In the early 2000’s that changed. Graphic design no longer kept my interest and I redirected my creative pursuits to making art.
Twenty-five years of design continue to serve me well. The formal aspects that I employed as a designer are the same principals that are at the foundation of my paintings. Organizing space, working with color, and playing with forms are at the core of what I do. I work in
oil and watercolor, enjoying each medium and their own challenges.
Since 2003 I have been showing my work in San Francisco, Sacramento, Santa Fe, and Palm Springs.
The future is bright and I look forward to where my work takes me.
My family remains my inspiration.
