About

Art making is not just learning a craft but also continuously exploring and discovering new ways of seeing the world and ourselves in it, and developing expressions of what is being learned that connect with others.

I work primarily in oil paints and dry mediums such as pastels, charcoal and graphite.

I have been very fortunate to have studied under some incredibly gifted artists including in the fine arts program at the University of California, Davis under Wayne Thiebaud, Squeak Carnwath, Manuel Neri, Cornelia Schulz, David Hollowell and others.
